The Question Mark Butterfly is one of many species of anglewing butterflies  Anglewing butterflies carry latent viruses that are activated by warm weather and kill the larvae, so the larvae survive best at cooler times of the year.  These viruses can kill larvae soon after hatching or later on, depending on the type of virus and the severity of the heat.  Because of this, you will have the most success rearing the larvae indoors in air conditioning during the summer, so that the larvae are kept cool enough to prevent these viruses from activating.

Note:  Butterfly eggs hatch quickly, so USPS First Class shipping is required.  Eggs are sensitive to excessive heat: please do not supply an address that delivers to a mailbox in the sun.   Please allow me a full week to ship because the eggs you have purchased have probably not been laid yet, other orders may be ahead of yours, and butterflies do not lay many eggs on cloudy days.  The eggs have to be less than 16 hours old when I ship them or they are likely to hatch in transit.  If the package is delayed by USPS, I will either re-ship or refund the order and shipping charges, because all problems associated with shipping are the responsibility of the seller.
