Fresh Sheet – March 21, 2015

You may know that Costa Rica’s Turrialba Volcano erupted several times last week. Our friends at Costa Rica Entomological Supply report the good news that all their staff and butterfly breeders are doing fine with just “some ash.” This week’s pupae shipment arrived safely and butterflies are now happily emerging in our Tropical Butterfly House Emerging Window.
