I think that may be the issue, that the sand is just different color. Wish I could remember the colors when I did the set up. Image But thanks so much for responding! I missed seeing you on here, I was worried about you. You helped me so much with my butterflies last year. I was able to raise and release 28 monarchs. I only lost 2 to the OE parasite. ImageImage

Thank you. That is very nice of you to say! That is awesome! I'm so glad that you were able to release so many! Make sure to sanitize all of your stuff if you plan to do it again this year! :butterfly::

Thanks! I washed the net/house in the laundry at the end of the season last year. Do you think I should give it a soak in bleach too before I use it this year? Image

If you did the bleach wash last year it will be fine.
