DUO Tree of Heaven Silkmoth cynthia with Robin Moth cecropia 10 eggs of each

Two large and spectacular silkmoths, with different and intreaguing larvae.  

Cynthia larvae are gregarious when young. They change from black-speckled yellow, to white. They do well on Privet, Tree of Heaven ailanthus, Llilac and other shrubs, including evergreens, such as Portugal Laurel, Viburnum tinus and Acuba.  

Both species thrive on Osier Willow Salix viminalis, and probably other Willows.

Robin Moth cecropia larvae feed on a number of trees and shrubs. Those reported are Poplars, Lilac, Cherry, Pear, Apple, Acer, Plum, Alder, Birch, Dogwood, Sallows, Willows, Elm, Beech, Gooseberry, Privet. Osier Willow is the plant that succeeds best for us.
