Indian Eri silkmoth caterpillars


Farmer Pack (includes ten caterpillars, housing, Liners, Privet Platform and care sheet).
Indian Eri silkmoth caterpillars

Enjoy keeping these blueish white caterpillars and watch them grow!

They eat fresh privet leaves, gather these yourself from privet hedges or buy fresh cut privet from Small-Life Supplies.

The Starter Pack contains two Indian Eri silkmoth caterpillars, one HUA Pot (for housing), twenty HUA Pot Liners, and an information sheet.

The Farmer Pack contains ten Indian Eri silkmoth caterpillars, one TTQ cage (for housing), twenty TTQ Liners, one Privet Platform (for holding privet stems upright) and an information sheet.
.

Every day, replace the Liner and add fresh privet. See the caterpillars grow to 7cm long and then each one will spin a silk cocoon. A few weeks later, the impressive giant Indian Eri silkmoths emerge! These adult silkmoths do not eat. House the winged silkmoths in the TTQ cage (or a netting enclosure). You can take them out in the late afternoon/evening and let them fly in the room. The females will lay eggs on the sides of the cage. If you'd like to hatch out the next generation, keep a few eggs in a Takeaway Dish with lid, and wait for them to hatch approx ten days later.

Thailand stick insects
Thailand stick insects have both males and females occuring in equal numbers . The females are long and green, the males are much thinner and dark brown.

Thailand stick insects eat bramble/blackberry leaves and are active when handled. Thailand stick insects are thin and fast moving, so need to be handled carefully. For this reason, they are not suitable to be handled by young children.

Thailand stick insects eat less than many other stick insects and so are perfect for people with busy lifestyles or limited supplies of bramble leaves.


Thailand stick insects are easy to breed, they mate regularly and their eggs hatch quickly, after just two months. Keep the newly hatched Thailand stick insects in the same ELC cage as the adults.

Want to mix stick insects? If you have New Guinea stick insects, these are best kept in their own ELC cage. Due to their bulk, they can accidentally harm a thinner stick insect if they tread on it. But the other types on this page can be kept together in the same ELC cage. But don't overcrowd them, so twelve is the maximum number (for example, four Indian, four Pink Winged and four Thailand).
