IMPORTANT NOTICE

When purchasing live butterflies for release, be sure to select a butterfly farm from the list of IBBA Members on this web site.

IBBA member butterfly farms:


are educated and experienced in every aspect of raising and
shipping butterflies
have federal permits to ship butterflies in the U.S., and
are guided by the IBBA code of ethics.

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.
