Garden Tiger Moth Arctia caja 50 larvae

 

The price for 50 Woolly Bears has been substantially reduced to encourage releasing in the wild.

 

 

 

In earlier days one can remember finding the furry caterpillars amongst the fresh spring nettles and docks on roadsides, almost everywhere. Sadly those days have gone, but it may be possible to encourage them back in little corners that you select. Garden Tigers are prolific breeders.  Release 50 larvae on a patch and, who knows, you might bring them back to your area.

 

 

Garden Tiger larvae Woolly Bears  grow fast on Dock, Dandelion, Dead Nettle, Nettle and many other hedgerow plants, also Pussy Willow Salix caprea and Osier Willow Salix viminalis.  You can also feed them conveniently on Cabbage. Now a most difficult species to obtain.

 

These are summer larvae which, in the wild, would hibernate, but if you keep them warm and light, many will produce another generation this year.

 

Children love them!
