Each order comes with either normal or zebra silkworm eggs and enough powdered chow to raise them to approximately 1 1/2 inches. Feeding off some silks at a smaller size will allow enough food to grow the remaining silks larger, which makes this combo perfect for those who have both hatchling/ juvenile and adult reptiles, or species of different sizes.
If you have a preference between the normal and zebra varieties, please make a note in the shipping instructions and we will do our best to accommodate you.
USPS Priority Mail shipping is included in the price.
*Note- All eggs in this combo come unglued. Large petri dishes are included with each order- 1 dish per 500 eggs. We recommend that the eggs be lightly glued to the petris using a glue stick (such as Elmer's) prior to hatching
Raising Tip- Newly hatched silkworms must be maintained at warm temperatures (78-80 degrees) or they will not grow and will usually die. We recommend incubators (see our Care & Raising Tips for more details on incubators and keeping them warm without one). Once the silkworms reach about 3/4 inch long (after about 10 to 12 days from the time they hatched) they are past the critical stage and can be rasied at lower temperatures but they should be kept warm thru all stages to grow quickly and remain healthy.
Our silkworm eggs are of SUPERIOR QUALITY
