We want to create a small butterfly house in KwaZulu-Natal (South Africa) and
we want to know what are the conditions for breeding Papilio nireus, Papilio
dardanus, Junonia hierta, Colias electo and Charaxes varanes.
Is there anyone rearing African butterflies that can help us with some
information of how to start a butterfly house using african species?
