Butterfly and Moth wings
You get between 2-3 wings depending on size. Our supply varies so we cannot package in pairs.
Where Do Our Wings Come From?
Our supplier recently did some research. Almost none of the insects we use are even from the United States. The vast majority of our insects come from international insect farms. Some are farmed for food (yes!) but most are farmed for the "scientific and artistic dried insect trade". The good news is that insect farming is usually a sustainable practice. They makes every attempt to purchase the insects from responsible sources, so when you purchase an insects from us you are also helping to promote insect and native forest conservation. Our supplier is required to carry a U.S. Fish & Wildlife "Wildlife Import Permit" in order to import specimens, so they are also regulated in that way. It is illegal for them to import insects that are endangered, and it is also illegal for them to import live insects.
