Indian Eri silkmoths
Indian Eri silkmoths (Samia ricini) emerge from large white cocoons.
These silkmoths like to rest inside the TTQ cage, on the mesh side or on dead twigs. They are large silkmoths and so you can take them out and let them walk across your hands. Most are reluctant to fly but some individuals do fly a short distance, for example from your hand to a table.

Keep the Indian Eri silkmoths in the TTQ cage, in a room that is comfortably warm.

These silkmoths do not eat but if you have males and females they will mate and then the female glues her white eggs onto the sides of the TTQ cage or on dead sticks.

Adult Indian Eri silkmoths live for about ten days. When they have died, you can pull the eggs off and store them in a QBOX.

When the eggs hatch, feed the caterpillars privet leaves. Keep small caterpillars in a QBOX or HUA Pot and large caterpillars in the TTQ cage.

Pack of TTQ cage + ten TTQ Liners + two Indian Eri silkmoth cocoons + information sheet ... £52.


Express delivery £9.95.
