Saturnia pavoniella coocons for sale

Beautiful S. pavoniella cocoons obtained by crossing captive females with wild males from Lombardia region, Italy. These cocoons will emerge in early spring. They need to be kept at low temperatures during winter, possibly outside if you live in cold country. Exposing cocoons to temperatures below zero during winter is recommended for a good hatching rate.

Adults pair very easily outdoors and eggs hatch in 10-14 days after egg laying and larvae can be reared on Rosaceae as Prunus, Rubus, Rosa

Very easy to rear and breed, if this species flies in your area you can attract wild males by simply putting your caged female on your balcony.


These pupae are shipped from Italy. Although we can ship Saturnia pavoniella pupae worldwide, we do not assume any responsibility for orders sent outside EU.
