Choose healthy, safe, harmless stick insects that have been bred for countless generations here at Small-Life Supplies in the UK. Keep them indoors in the ELC stick insect cage. All our stick insects eat bramble (blackberry) leaves which you can gather yourself from overgrown areas. You can house Indian, Pink Winged and Thailand stick insects altogether in the same ELC stick insect cage.
Our caterpillars are also in stock now, these are British species with fast lifecycles, reared by us.

The Pieris brassicae Caterpillar Kit
British Pieris brassicae caterpillar kit
NEW! British caterpillar kits for April and May 2021!
Enjoy keeping these British caterpillars indoors and watch them grow!
Two species are available now:

The Pieris brassicae caterpillars are mainly yellow and like to rest together. They eat brassica leaves (such as cabbage, nasturtium, and broccoli). These caterpillars are fast growing, becoming large before metamorphosising into pupae. A couple of weeks later, the Large White Butterflies emerge, these can be released outside near flowers.


The Orgyia antiqua caterpillars are red and yellow and are more active. They eat bramble (blackberry) leaves. These caterpillars are fast growing, become large, and then each caterpillar spins a cocoon around itself. The adults emerge within weeks as British Vapourer Moths, these can be released outside near plants.

Both types of caterpillars are easy to keep indoors in the HAP housing supplied. Keep the surroundings clean by replacing the Liner daily . The Liners are included, also the specific care sheet and a 4 page informative colour leaflet about butterflies and moths, written by professional entomologist Dorothy Floyd.
You can gather the appropriate leaves for food , or purchase small bags of the fresh leaves (store in the fridge to keep fresh).
