NHBS Quick Guide – Butterfly Nets

Take a closer look at the beautiful butterflies of your region with one of the wide variety of butterfly nets offered by NHBS.

From the portable Crushable Pocket Butterfly Net to the heavy-duty Large Butterfly Net, we offer a butterfly net for every need (and for every age – check out the Children’s Butterfly Net). With these nets, you can safely capture and examine butterflies and other insects, then release them back into the wild.

We list over 1500 lepidoptera books at NHBS, including these Butterfly Bestsellers.
