Beautiful, healthy, and what your animals are craving ... "original" green Mulberry Farms hornworms!
OUR STANDARD SIZE (24 oz) HORNWORM CUP (great for juveniles, adults, larger species) includes approx. 20+ (often much higher count) hornworms (small size) and enough food to grow them to medium/large size (depending on how fast your animals gobble them up!).*
*[Note: as worms grow a lower worm count may be required to fit worms in the cup.]
Self contained and easy to maintain, our Hornworm Cups make keeping fresh feeders on hand easy!!
IF YOU HAVE A SIZE PREFERENCE FOR YOUR WORMS (we can ship hornworms up to 2" in length, larger if shipped overnight -- these worms will grow quite a bit during several days in transit, especially in warm weather), please remember to place size requests (be as specific as possible!) in the "special instructions" section (during "checkout") when ordering ... we will do our BEST to accommodate your size request as closely as possible.
[WE GENERALLY TRY TO SHIP HORNWORMS THAT ARE APPROX. 1 to 1-1/2" LONG OR THAT ARE SIZE APPROPRIATE FOR THE OTHER FEEDERS YOU ORDERED (IF ANY). SOMETIMES DUE TO INVENTORY WE DO NOT HAVE THAT SIZE OF HORNWORM IN STOCK. IF YOU DO NOT WANT TO TAKE WHATEVER SIZE HORNWORMS WE HAVE IN STOCK, INCLUDING HATCHLINGS UP TO 2 INCHES, PLEASE STATE THIS IN THE SHIPPING INSTRUCTIONS DURING CHECKOUT; BE VERY SPECIFIC ABOUT THE MINIMUM AND MAXIMUM SIZE YOU WILL TAKE, I.E. "DO NOT SHIP HORNWORMS LESS THAN [FILL IN THE MINIMUM SIZE YOU REQUIRE IN INCHES] or MORE THAN [FILL IN THE MAXIMUM SIZE YOU CAN USE IN INCHES]" AND WE WILL NOT SHIP YOUR ORDER WITHOUT SPEAKING WITH YOU FIRST IF WE CANNOT MEET YOUR SIZE REQUIREMENTS. THANK YOU. ]
[NOTE: PURSUANT TO OUR INVENTORY WE MAY, FROM TIME TO TIME, NEED TO SUBSTITUTE YELLOW HORNWORM CUPS FOR GREEN HORNWORM CUPS, AND VICE VERSA, IN ORDER TO MEET CUSTOMER DEMAND AND ACCOMMODATE SPECIAL SIZE REQUESTS. IF YOU DO NOT WANT US TO SUBSTITUTE A DIFFERENT COLOR OF HORNWORM CUP THAN ORDERED TO MEET YOUR SIZE REQUEST/FILL YOUR ORDER, PLEASE PUT "DO NOT SUBSTITUTE HORN FOOD COLOR" IN THE SHIPPING INSTRUCTIONS. THANK YOU.]
[YOU CAN SLOW DOWN THE GROWTH OF YOUR HORNWORMS BY KEEPING THEM COOL -- AROUND 50-55 DEGREES. (Do Not Refrigerate!) If you don't have a cool place or wine cooler where you can store your hornworms, you can put your hornworm cup(s) on one side of an ice chest/cooler and place resuable ice packs on the other side of the ice chest/cooler (be sure the ice pack doesn't touch the hornworm cup!), replacing the ice pack as needed to keep temperature cool - this will make your hornworms grow slowly and last even longer!]
OUR HORNWORMS ARE RAISED ON OUR QUALITY (NON CHINESE SOURCE!) SILKWORM CHOW WHICH CAN BE PURCHASED SEPARATELY IF YOU NEED MORE FOOD FOR YOUR HUNGRY HORNWORMS! (You can also purchase additional cups with mesh and prepared chow for an easy way to transfer your worms to a new cup!)
