    I'm looking to buy 4 cups with 20+ hornworms in them. I've looked at a couple sites. Prices below

    1.) Mulberryfarms - 4 cups for $29.95 + shipping (unknown amount in cups)
    2.) Great Lakes - 4 cups for $34.95 + Shipping (25-30 worms per cup)
    3.) TikiTikiReptiles - 4 Cups for $40.00 + Shipping (unknown amount in cups)
    4.) Coastal - 4 cups for $33.00 + Shipping (15-20 worms per cup)
    5.) top hat cricket farms - 4 Cups for $44 + shipping (12 per cup)

    Any other places?

    I am going to mulberry farms tomorrow. If I pick them up he gives me a good price (lower then what's on the site). If you want I can get four cups of hornworms for you. I live in Brea, what size would you want?

    Seeing as one worm can destroy several plants and they enjoy eating our food producing ones, exporting them there is NOT gonna happen.

    hornworm damage

    A hornworm can damage a tomato plant but normally doesn't do damage to more than one. two placed on a sacrificial plant would probably suffice leaving the others alone or little damage. Having the hummingbird moths around in the evening is worth a sacrificial tomato plant:) I have had them all around me for most of my 66 years and miss them greatly now a days with people spraying nematodes all around destroying every caterpillar they encounter:( They destroy the monarchs as well.
