Tobacco Hornworm (Manduca sexta) Professional Breeding Kit, THK1000
With the Educational Science Professional hornworm breeder kit, you can provide continuous, nutritious, and fresh feeder worms for your Reptiles and birds, start your own feeder insect business, or simply start an interesting moth breeding hobby. With increasing USPS and FEDEX shipping cost, you can save hundreds on having feeder insects shipped several times a month to your house! Become an expert on breeding your own hornworms, and in the process save money by raising your own live pet food. Start your own feeder insect business and sell extra feeder insects to schools, research labs, or Reptile owners. Manduca sexta, also known as the Tobacco Hornworm in its larval stage, and as the Hummingbird Hawkmoth or Sphinx moth in its adult stage, is an excellent species for classroom lifecycle study, a model for scientific research, or as nutritious reptile feeder insects. The larvae are large, easy to rear on artificial diet, and most important are disease resistant. The caterpillar eats primarily tomato leaves and the adult is a nectar feeder. At room temperature the larval stage last between 3-4 weeks and the pupal stage about one month or less. Typical of most sphnigid moths, the Hummingbird Hawkmoth is a wonderful flier with a five inch wingspan and like the Hummingbird, can hover in flight and feed without landing. The Tobacco hawkmoth (Manduca sexta) Professional Breeding Kit includes: Mail-in Certificate redeemable for 100 hornworm eggs, instant hornworm artificial diet(1kg), 24-oz rearing cups, 10 with scaffolding and ventilated lids, mass rearing box with scaffold and ventilated lid, forceps, pupation chamber, pupation media, Giant Pop-Up Breeding cage (LH175), pop-up emergence cage(BH104), butterfly feeder, artificial non-fernmenting nectar/egg laying stimulating reagent, oviposition substrate, and instruction manual.
