What should I do? I would love to by the kit for Christmas , however I worry it will be to cold for the poor butterflies to let them go... I do not want to kill them quicker than there life cycle would have them live ... What is best to do> And how long has anyone waited before ordering the catipillars?
It makes no sense at all to order them for xmas when you can't release the butterflies because they'll of course freeze to death. Wait until Spring -- if the kid you're getting it for doesn't have a birthday in the Spring or Summer, then get it for an Easter present.
