Vapourer  caterpillars on QBOX lid
British Vapourer caterpillars under QBOX lid (Orgyia antiqua)
British Vapourer caterpillar kit
British Vapourer caterpillars are very fast growing so you can enjoy seeing them develop quickly.

Four caterpillars are supplied, together with a clear QBOX which is ideal housing for them.

Caterpillars need to be kept in clean surroundings and so replace the QBOX Liner every day. A pack of twenty QBOX Liners are included with each kit.

British Vapourer caterpillars eat bramble (blackberry) leaves. Gather these yourself from outside, or you can buy a small bag of fresh cut leaves from us (store these in the fridge to keep the leaves fresh).

The caterpillars will be fully grown within a couple of weeks and you can watch them spin cocoons under the QBOX Lid.

A few weeks later the adult moths emerge and you can set these free outdoors in the garden or an overgrown area. The British Vapourer moth (Orgyia antiqua) is naturally widespread across the UK and so it is OK to release them outside.

Or, if you would like to see the next generation, let them mate and see the female glue her eggs on the QBOX. The eggs start to hatch a few weeks later and the young caterpillars eat bramble (blackberry) leaves.

Caterpillar Kit (includes four British Vapourer caterpillars, QBOX, QBOX Liners, information sheet):
1 kit ...£12

Optional extra: small bag fresh loose bramble leaves ...£1.30
Express delivery £7.95.
