How to breed butterflies and how butterfly house are built

How to breed butterflies and how butterfly house are built

In this article, we’ll see how a butterfly house can be create with the help of different types of plastic meshes. Butterfly houses host hundreds of butterflies that fly freely as if they were in their natural habitat of the Amazon, Africa, or Asia. In addition to butterflies of all colors and sizes, you can also find other animals such as different insects, usually immersed in lush vegetation. In this extremely biodiverse environment, educational activities can be carry out. For example, observing the chrysalises during the hatching phase and witnessing the birth of a new butterfly.

To make a butterfly hatchery, a plastic mesh must be purchased and ABEMALLA® mesh is a good choice.

Why Create a Butterfly House

The greater the environmental degradation due to pollution, pesticide use, or habitat erosion, the greater the loss of biodiversity. To prevent the loss of butterfly species, butterfly breeding has spread. It has also become a commercial and tourist activity. Some of the world’s most beautiful butterflies live in butterfly houses, in a microcosm that contains a unique ecosystem. The goal is to share with others the extraordinary riches of the world of live insects. At the same time, allowing people to interact directly with butterflies. Greenhouses where butterflies and other animals fly. Thanks to the help of plastic meshes, the best environment that can host butterflies can be recreate naturally and ecologically.

One of the most important reasons for creating a butterfly farm is to breed different species of butterflies and prevent their loss.

Building a Center for Breeding and Producing Butterflies with a Butterfly House HORTOMALLAS®

To open a butterfly house, it’s necessary to start with having an available surface. Above all, you should prefer a place with uniform, leveled terrain and well-connected. Then you need to build a structure that guarantees the best life for butterflies and, consequently, the best possible use by the public. For construction, the bird-proof animal containment mesh can be use. Plastic mesh allows for the construction of a low-cost butterfly house that is easy to maintain.

ABEMALLA® mesh
The first thing you must have to create a butterfly garden is to have an available space where to build it and then build the structure where to place the mesh.

Example of Butterfly House Building

Given the great interest in how to breed butterflies, we’ll explain here how a butterfly house is made. Ground dimensions: 150 m2. Installation dimensions: approximately 9.60 m by 7.20 m. The roof and walls of the structure can be effectively made with plastic mesh. Two main spaces are planned: one for adult butterflies and one for eggs and larvae. It would also be advisable to implement a nursery, choosing plants that can be beneficial for butterflies. THE FLIGHT CUBICLE: Minimum dimensions: 2.50 x 8 m by 2.50 m high.

It’s very important to provide shade because butterflies cannot tolerate being under direct sunlight due to the risk of dehydration. For this purpose, the OBAMALLA® shade mesh can be use, which thanks to its variable shade percentage can serve both as sun protection and as a windbreak. In fact, plastic meshes can be use to counteract air currents that can be very harmful to butterflies.

Windbreak mesh for building butterfly houses

The windbreak mesh constitutes a formidable barrier that can be place in different locations according to the time of year and need. THE LARVAL: Minimum dimensions: 2.50 x 8 m by 2.50 m high. This part must be fully cover. Isolation through meshes allows preserving butterfly houses from external predators. In fact, it’s necessary to implement protection systems since butterflies are very delicate beings that can suffer threats both as eggs and as caterpillars (in nature, the mortality rate is very high). Butterflies must be protect at all stages of development. On the one hand, eggs can be attack by mosquitoes.

The dimensions needed to create a butterfly garden are 150 square meters and its installation dimensions are approximately 9.60 meters by 7.20 meters.

How the mesh is use to build butterfly houses

The plastic mesh can be easily bent to make any shape or structure. Its ends can be close with ropes or plastic ties. Posts are generally use on which the mesh is support. Large net panels can thus be build to limit environments. Being resistant yet flexible, the hexagonal or square poultry mesh also serves as reinforcement and confinement nets.

Tips for Raising Butterflies: Eggs – Caterpillar – Chrysalis – Butterflies

Both butterflies and moths belong to the lepidopteran family and there are more than 150,000 species. However, only a small part are diurnal butterflies, while all the others live at night (moths). Both species have a wide range of sizes and colors. To breed butterflies or, rather, caterpillars, you first need practical and cleanable boxes of approximately 20x20x30. You also need a non-woven fabric like INVERNAVELO®, which is dense enough to prevent caterpillars from escaping but allows ventilation. This mesh is remove when the butterflies have reached certain dimensions. The EGG opens in 10 days. The caterpillar changes its coat 4 times in 2-3 weeks. When the caterpillar is large and stops eating, it is preparing to pupate. It takes about 10-15 days before the butterfly is born. And shortly before, the chrysalis becomes transparent, and the colors of the butterfly can be glimpsed.
