So get my first reptile expo I purchased hornworm eggs. They're growing quite fast. I'm wondering how to breed them for a constant supply. does anybody have an idea how to breed hornworms. Any insight would be great thanks in advance.

well they have to pupate into moths then move them to a butterfly enclosure and they should do what moths do. they should be fed sugar water or humming bird nectar kind of like how you´d raise a butterfly. i used to work in a butterfly house so i know some of this. we bred exotic butterflies but im not so sure about moths. btw move them to a tomato plant with soil, they need to dig and pupate in the soil.
