Wild release is okay only in Oregon.  Other states, please consult with your appropriate state agency for guidance on the additional permit/license required.  Without the additional permit, it's not legal to wild release. 


  • Eggs are available in spring for PRE-ORDER. We may also have other eggs available later, depending on collecting and breeding.  These additional species will be added for short periods of time, and announced on our Facebook page.
  • ORDER ALL EGGS SEPARATELY. So if you're ordering Polyphemus Silkmoth eggs, and Ceanothus Silkmoth eggs...that should be TWO SEPARATE ORDERS. This is because each individual species will ship at a different time, as each species will fly at a different time.  This also allows us to refund appropriately if a species has a bad year and eggs are not available



  • Pupae will ship through winter and spring until sold out. 
  • Multiple species can be ordered together and will ship together EXCEPT SUMMER PUPAE. (Summer pupae are available at different times and ship separately, just like eggs.)
