Manduca sexta/ AKA Hornworms/ AKA Goliath worms.
Wonderful feeder; but, can be a bit tough to breed.
Go here: www.manducaproject.com navigating the site can be a bit PITA. But, the site is very excellent.

Thats were I found the ManducaSextaProject link, If it's not on google it doesn't exist!


The ManducaSextaProject site has a tutorial on setting up your own breeding and housing enclosures. Greatlake Hornworms, and Mulberry Farms carry eggs and chow, to get you going. I have 7 Cacoons at the momment waiting to hatch, I am still undecided on weather I want to breed this batch, as it means $$ and a fair amount time. I will however comment on the fact that they are easier then Silkworms in certain aspects. Example: They are not nearly as vulnerable to bacteria and germs like silkworms. I had 43 silkworm cacoons when I counted 2 days ago, and were probably up to 60 or so today. Rather then to bother with the horns, I am going to focus my time and efforts on the silks. There are still about 120-130 jumbos pacing their containers ready to change too. I plan to do some experimenting with these eggs, Frans has really got me wanting to try diapausing a fair amount of them. Frans.... can you save me some real estate in your fridge...??? No matter how much I rant and rave about the fact that its for science!! I don't know if anyone is going to be very keen on the 1000's of eggs near the cheese and butter....

Good luck with your Horn project,
Jay
