Amazing Bugs Hornworm Kit Observe six hornworms as they go from tiny to HUGE.Our Amazing Bugs Hornworm Kit provides you with everything needed to observe these astonishing green caterpillars. Safe for children to handle. When completed, simply rinse out mesh house with soap and water, let air dry, then fold and store for future use with another cup of hornworms or our other live insects. Wonderful, full-color hornworm poster (available only in Amazing Bugs Kit).Includes:
Tiny hornworms arrive in their own cup, complete with food and ventilated lid. Watch them eat, eat, eat and become the biggest green caterpillars you've ever seen (4-6 inches long)! As hornworms become too large for their cup, spread shavings on the bottom of your box, habitat or mesh house, remove cup's lid and place open cup inside, on its side. Caterpillars will continue to eat until food is gone, then leave the cup and explore their new home. Soon they will burrow down into the shavings in order to pupate. Keep until they emerge (up to 180 days) or bury outside for spring emergence. Your hornworms will become large, beautiful moths known by three common names: sphinx moth, hummingbird moth or hawk moth. Availability: Can be shipped from March through October.
