Hyalophora cecropia, or the Cecropia moth, caterpillars are available for Ohio residents only. They are the largest moth in the U.S. and are easy to raise.


Caterpillars will need Sweetgum leaves and plenty of it for two months or so while they grow. Other host plants exist but this is what we are raising them on and they will not switch foods easily. Keep in mind silkmoths like Cecropia only live for a week or two after they emerge from their cocoon and they will overwinter to emerge next Summer.


***This species should not be released into the wild***


Each order is for a 5-7 4th or 5th instar caterpillars that will be shipped in a container with enough food for their journey. If you have any questions while raising your Cecropia, we're always happy to help.
