SHIPPING WITHIN EU ONLY – EXPRESS COURIER SHIPPING RECOMMENDED
VERY IMPORTANT NOTE: These eggs are shipped from Italy with priority shipping, in order to ensure fast arrival before hatching. Unfortunately, giving the current Covid-19 pandemia, postal service has experienced random delays in deliveries. This is the reason why we DO NOT assume responsibility for eggs hatching during travel for any eggs order which is sent outside Italy. As always we will try to reship or refund when possible, but this cannot be guaranteed. If you order from Italy, we do offer full reship or refund as always, in case of any problem.
Sphingidae eggs hatch quickly, so by purchasing this item you’re taking the risk. We only send out eggs laid the night before shipping, but we cannot guarantee the safe arrival of these eggs due to possible delays in deliveries.
Marumba quercus, eggs for sale.
Eggs hatch in 7-10 days after egg laying and larvae can be reared on Quercus.
It has one generation per year and overwinters as a pupa among leaf litter. Newly hatched L1 caterpillars feed on the egg shell and start moulting straight after, so don’t bother providing foodplant to them as soon as they hatch.
