    Okay, I have considered the chance my little crinkle couple are sick, ill or contain problems that will harm others, but can move them away as the remainders emerge.

    One of them shows a very strong will and fights pethetically with my approaching finger, and for that I am giving him a lot of credit in the scale of “keeping” or “crushing”…

    So, what is best practice for keeping these poor little fellows with wings that are never going to straighten as pets?

    Have been trying (like I said, below) to get a picture working here without success….

    So here is another attempt. Please try clicking and viewing the picture. It shows two of the dead and really should be a valid warning for us all.

    Not one comment at all?

    Seriously? Not even MONARCH.ORG.NZ is worried that Bunnings is using their good name to sell product that is clearly not fit for purpose and, in fact, kills the very thing they are advertising it as being useful for?

    Really?

    Maybe someone representing MONARCH.ORG.NZ could at least offer to send Bunnings some basic facts on labeling and handling the product without contamination?

    Thanks for the help.

    Having kept mine inside, with windows open, the majority of the chrysalis that attached outside the house were destroyed by Wellington wind very quickly over last few weeks. Is not a good feeling knowing the effort they put in to make it that far through their cycle – not to mention the stress and effort on me and my helpers keeping the little blighters happy with food over last four weeks!

    Anyway, the heavy wind and rain could explain it… They are oh-so delicate, unfortunately.
