Insect Lore was founded in 1969 in California, USA by Carlos White, an entomologist.  He had an idea to create a kit so that children (and adults) could watch up close the wonders of metamorphosis of real, live caterpillars into butterflies. 

The Butterfly Kits include a certificate that is posted off in order to receive live caterpillars.  The caterpillars are shipped to customer in a special jar that includes caterpillar food.  In time, the caterpillars eat the food, change into chrysalises, and finally emerge as adult butterflies in the hatching net included with the kit. After a few days of observation, the butterflies are set free - delighting both the customer and the butterflies.

The Insect lore range also includes ant farms, worm farms and stick insect kits.
