Are you looking for a way to observe a striking visual
display of the
final stage of COMPLETE METAMORPHOSIS?
incubating a Cecropia cocoon at room temperatures for
30-60 days, the adult
moth will emerge in early afternoon. With wings
spanning 6 inches from tip to tip, and colored shades of red,
and lavender, the Cecropia is the largest and most beautiful moth of
the cocoon and the adult require minimal care and no special
equipment. A 5 gallon aquarium or similar sized
box will do for a container.
the Cecropia eats only in the larval stage, NO FEEDING is required.
The adult lives for 8-15 days, then
dies naturally. If the adult
during warm spring weather, it CAN BE RELEASED.
An order is sent with concise, easily
understood instructions plus additional
information about the Cecropia
moth. Instructions also appear on
Cecropia is an excellent project with consistently fine results.
I GUARANTEE EACH COCOON will emerge or I
will return the purchase price.
Thank you for your order.
This last summer I very successfully raised a large number of cecropias,
after several years of difficulty.
My crop was the largest, most beautiful cecropias I have ever seen!!! I am back in business and am confident
I can continue to raise cecropias every year. In general, the cocoons are a lustrous, dark reddish silk. I fill orders
on a first come, first
serve basis. I begin to fill
orders on February 1 (I must keep cocoons in the cold until then
or they will
not hatch), and will not ship for arrival after April 30.
This Years Crop.
