These fast growing caterpillars complete their lifecycle within a week or two!

They eat bramble/blackberry leaves. Put a fresh leaf in the QBOX every day and watch them eat!

Fully grown caterpillars spin cocoons on the sides and lid of the QBOX. Leave these alone and wait for the adults to emerge after a couple of weeks or so. You then have the satisfaction of releasing them outside (British Vapourers are naturally widespread across the UK and so it is OK to do this).

African large fruit beetle
Pachnoda sp.

Pachnoda fruit beetles kit
Pachnoda fruit beetles originated from Africa but have been kept as pets in the UK for decades.

They are large colourful beetles which can walk across your fingers. When it is very hot they can fly and they make a buzzing noise when they fly!

Pachnoda beetles like to climb and rest on the mesh sides of the ELS cage (this cage is the same as the ELC but is 47cm high instead of 51cm high). Place a dish of soil for them to bury their eggs and insert twigs because the large beetle larvae construct sacs from the soil and attach these to the twigs).
Feed the beetles with fresh fruit (orange and banana slices are their favourites) and provide a shallow Water Dish filled with fresh cold tap water.
Pachnoda pack includes: ELS cage, ten Liners, six adult beetles (mixture of males and females), Water Dish, two mesh floor mats, Water Dish, 350g sterilised soil, bundle of twigs, Cleaning Sponge, information sheet ...£70.
