Duo Peacock Butterfly Inachis io and Small Tortoiseshell urticae 10 larvae of each
 

 

Ten larvae each of the Small Tortoiseshell and Peacock Butterfly.  Both feed on Stinging Nettle. Young larvae should be kept on growing foodplant, covered with a netting sleeve, or reared in plastic rearing containers, cleaned out and fed daily as shown in the All Colour Paperback BUTTERFLIES. When larger, the larvae can be caged with cut nettle in a jar or water, on on potted growing foodplant.

 

Keeping two species of larvae together on the same foodplant?  It is sometimes possible, but their way of life may differ and we recommend keeping them separately.
