BREEDING OUTFIT Cage, Pupae Nest and 5 cocoons for breeding

The Breeding Outfit includes a Standard Cage, a PUPAE NEST and 5 cocoons. The cocoons will be your choice of the Giant Atlas Moth, the biggest species in the world, or the Chinese Oak Silkmoth pernyi  which are not as giant but they are lideal for even beginners to breed. State your preference for Giant Atlas or Chinese Oak Silkmoth in the comments box when ordering.

The Pyjama Standard Cage is just the right size for incubating even the larger moths, and is useful for rearing larvae, Sitck and Leaf Insects and other creatures. The PUPAE NEST is the innovative way that WWB keeps pupae in the emerging cage. It is designed principally to keep underground pupae in ideal conditions which can be monitored and maintained free of infection, but is also ideal for both Silkmoth Cocoons and Exotic Butterfly Pupae. The PUPAE NEST fits in the Standard Cage, which can also be used later for rearing larvae.

This equipment, with cocoons for breeding, helps to ensure success. It may appear to be costly, but it provides all that is necessary for breeding these amazing exotic giant moths from cocoons.  Store the cocoons in the fridge until mid-April. Then keep them in the cage on the bobble foam, thoroughly wetted. They like a temperature of 25-30 degrees C. Water liberally on any warm days, ensuring that the cocoons drain and do not lie in water. The moths may take some weeks, but will emerge in summer. Keep one pair at a time together in the cage, nice and warm to encourage them to mate. They stay joined for a day and must not be moved or disturbed. The female will lay eggs on the netting of the cage.
