Actias luna, or the Luna moth, caterpillars are available for Ohio residents only. These gorgeous moths are very easy and fun to raise. They're one of our favorites for sure!


Caterpillars will need Sweetgum leaves and plenty of it for two to three weeks 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 Lunas only live for a week or two after they emerge from their cocoon and they may decide to overwinter depending on the time of year when they spin their cocoon.


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


Each order is for a 5-7 4th-5th instar caterpillars that will be shipped in a container with enough food for their journey. If you have any questions while raising your lunas, we're always happy to help but also recommend trying the website for Bart Coppens,
