Easy Butterfly Holding Chamber

Ever need a quick place to put a butterfly or insect you've met in the garden? Here's a very simple, effective and cheap way to temporarily house your new critter.

PLASTIC CONTAINER
Chinese food quart-size take-out containers make the perfect butterfly holding chamber! Remove the lid and cut a whole through the middle, leaving approximately 1cm from the edge.

NETTING
Grab a piece of netting or tulle and cut a small square to fit over the opening of the container.

Place the pre-cut lid over the netting to close the container and now you have the perfect way to safely house your new friend!

Thanks to Rick Mikula, The Butterfly Guy, for this great information!
