Larvae Refill Kit

Larvae Refill Kit, Painted Lady Refill Kit, Caterpillar refill

Vanessa cardui. Five larvae shipped in a clear, 8-oz rearing chamber with food. Larvae pupate and emerge as adults in about 30 days. At least 3 out of 5 larvae are guaranteed to emerge as healthy adult butterflies. With instructions.

After the adults emerge, try breeding them. All you need is the proper host plant for the adults to lay eggs on. The Mallow Plant is the painted lady's natural host. Once your new generation of caterpillars hatch, they will be hungry, and the mallow plant is the perfect source of food for them.

Address Multiple Life Science Topics
Painted lady butterflies are appropriate for all grade levels but especially effective for grades K-8. They enable students to observe complete metamorphosis, from caterpillar to chrysalis to adult butterfly. Students can then compare the butterfly life cycle to that of other animals or investigate how temperature affects insect development time. General life scence topics can be addressed as well, including how form fits function and what organisms need to survive.
