Silkworms (per 25). Silk caterpillars are very responsive. They look up when you enter the room because they anticipate you feeding them. After the final molt, when they grow to about three inches in length and a half inch in diameter, they enjoy crawling on your hands and exploring. They need plenty of mulberry leaves to eat. The silkworms are shipped with enough food to arrive safely. You will need a food source when the silkworms are received. If a mulberry tree is not available, there is a prepared diet that can be used. the prepared diet is under the "Critter Supplies" heading and is sold in powder form in one pound containers.
Generally, live animals will be shipped 7-10 days after receipt of the order. If you need immediate shipping, please call or email. We do not ship live animals over the weekend. If you need the live animals at a certain time, please call or email to verify availability and possible express shipping charges.
