Indian Eri silkmoth
Samia ricini

Indian Eri silkmoth caterpillar kit

Enjoy watching these caterpillars grow over the next few weeks!

Two caterpillars are supplied, together with housing (HUA Pot) and HUA Pot Liners.

Every day, replace the HUA Pot Liner and insert fresh privet leaves. You can see the caterpillars eating the green privet leaves.

The caterpillars grow by climbing out of their skins. Soon they will be 7cm long and ready to spin a silk cocoon. The cocoon does not eat and should be left alone.

A few weeks later the large Indian Eri silkmoth emerges, the silkmoth can walk across your hand. House the large silkmoths in a large enclosure, they do not eat or drink but can be handled. They live about one week and need to be kept indoors. Do not release them outside.

New Guinea stick insect adult female
Eurycantha calcarata

New Guinea stick insects
These are chunky stick insects which benefit from a lot of attention, so are ideal if you'd like to handle your stick insects frequently.

New Guinea stick insects eat bramble/blackberry leaves, also hazel leaves and rose leaves.


New Guinea stick insects are active and it's good to take them out of the ELC cage regularly so they can walk across a table or floor.
These stick insects require a Water Dish and also Community Tubes in which to rest. The adults mate regularly and the female buries her eggs in the Sand Pit.

New Guinea stick insects have longer lifespans than most stick insects, so typically live 18 months, although some can live for two or even three years! It is essential to house them correctly, and the ELC cage is the best cage for them. They are big heavy stick insects and do well in the ELC cage because they can hook their claws around the specially made holes and climb the sides of the ELC cage.


Pack of four New Guinea stick insect young adults (two males and two females) £29.
Water Dish, Sand Pit and two Community Tubes £6.


Express delivery £9.95.

Pink Winged stick insects eat bramble (blackberry) leaves, also eucalyptus leaves. They do best in the tall airy ELC cage.

Supplied as nymphs, this means they are not yet fully grown so you can look forward to seeing them grow and acquire their wings within the next few months. The adults glue their eggs into the holes in the white mesh and also onto Hatch Mats. Leave the eggs where they have been glued.

Baculum thaii
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.

Pack of six Thailand stick insect young adults (three males and three females) £15.


Express delivery £9.95.


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.

Thailand stick insects do best in the tall airy ELC cage
