Framed Insects / butterflies are a natural product and as such small imperfections may occur. All the insects are permanently and professionally mounted to the backboard and cannot be removed without causing damage to the butterfly specimen.
Our black frames are not made from real wood. Gallery quality shadowbox frame. Ethical concerns over deforestation in many third world countries has led us to pioneer the use of timber substitute framing. All frames have glass fronts with a hook ready to hang.
All butterflies, other insects and arachnids are REAL! We do not alter, enhance or otherwise modify their natural colour.
As company policy, we do not trade in endangered, rare or otherwise protected wildlife. We source some of our supplies of common, abundant insect species from Government regulated ranching cooperatives in many countries. Some countries require strict permits for export to regulate and control populations. Your purchase actually aids environmental conservation rather than detracting from it by encouraging the indigenous caretakers to maintain host plant areas and all taxes on permitted insects go toward government regulatory control. Breeders (often called farmers) can be single people or families operating a 'cottage industry' to produce pupae. Small breeders are sometimes organised in cooperatives. At the other extreme, large butterfly farms can have many employees. Hundreds are involved, notably in tropical countries (including Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, El Salvador, Indonesia, Kenya, Malaysia, Suriname, Philippines, Tanzania, and Thailand). Being engaged in such a process can have social, economic, and environmental benefits: "Butterfly farming allows the local community to diversify their income generating activities and to work at home around childcare and domestic duties. It also raises awareness among residents and decision makers of the benefits of conservation."
