emerging cage photo

November 4th. Great Purple Hairstreak pupae placed in emerging cage. The best method is to leave them on the substate that they pupated on and use insect pins to place them in the cage. That way the emerging butterfly will have something firm to grasp as it is eclosing from the pupal case. Yes, I know, this cage is a real mess. Yes, the cage does have a door.
