Pupae will be verified live and healthy before shipment.
Pupae is NOT DIAPAUSING. It will eclose (hatch) in summer.
Packed like royalty in cotton roll, and carefully shipped to you.
General Directions. These are pretty easy to hatch and release, but some details are helpful:
Lay the pupae on paper towel in a pop-up tent.
Mist DAILY. These usually pupate underground, so the extra moisture is important.
Pupae will begin to show signs of wing color and pattern as it gets close to eclosion.
