Megan, just curious what you are doing with the Luna Moth larvae and Wooly bears? Are you rearing them for release? When I was a kid back in the dinosaur days, I used to tank raise many types of butterfly and moth larvae to maturity for release, favs were Polyphemus Moth and Monarchs, I still have a milkweed plot for the Monarchs. What are you feeding the Lunas? Bill

I am raising the wolly bears for the frogs and lizards. So when they turn to moths I will be able to feed the. don't worry, I did some research and they won't hurt them. And I am raising the luna to keep some and to give some to my aunt and uncle for the kids. I was intending on selling some too, but enough of them died off I don't think I will be able to. Because you can make a good amount of profit off of them. I would probably sell mine for 3-4 dollars per coccon. most people sell them for more like 4-6 dollars! And if I had a hundred coccons and sold all of the for lets say 3, I would make $300! And for the most part one moth lays 100-400 eggs. I started out with 12 moths and 221 caterpillars but ,naturally, some died. so now all I have is 28 caterpillars. so I really need to change the amount I have. And most of the caterpillars I have left are in the fifth instar!! yay! can't wait til they turn into coccons.then I have to wait til next your to see the moths. And I think we(me and my sister) found some regal moth eggs!! I can't wait to get a response from my friend. he is going to comfirm it for me. my friend raises over 1600 moths per year. And I also like to raise monarchs. I am going to go out to the contry here within the next couple of week and I will most likely pick some up. And my friend has given up some moth eggs before and he was planning on giving us some polyphemus but forgot. he has college and 3 jobs, so I can imagine it could be pretty hard to forget things, lol. if I have a ton extra next year I will probably release some!!

It is nice to see young people involved in the world around them other than games and Bling. What are you feeding the Luna Moth larvae? Bill

I know what you mean (games and bling). I just don't like that type of stuff. I am feeding the luna moth larvae black walnut leaves. I had also tried raising some cecropia moth caterpillars. but for some reason they wouldn't eat. and I was feeding the right things too.
