David Tutera Unveiled
On October 5th, 2013, IBBA sponsored a butterfly release for US television show "David Tutera Unveiled - Internet Bride".
The IBBA recommends purchasing adult butterflies and does not endorse shipping pupae in boxes that must emerge inside the boxes before release as a butterfly. The quality and success of a butterfly release declines when pupae are shipped in boxes, instead of adult butterflies. For the best results, allow a professional butterfly farm to hand raise your livestock and ship it to you fully developed.
For the highest quality butterflies for your event, be sure to rely on an IBBA farm to provide healthy, strong and stunningly beautiful butterflies.
