Witness the miracle of metamorphosis! Caterpillars will need a food source when they arrive. You may purchase your host plant from Shady Oak Butterfly Farm or from a local plant nursery. Pipevine Swallowtail Butterflies eat Pipevine - but not all varieties, so please email if you are uncertain if your variety is safe larval food. Be certain the plant has not been sprayed with insecticides, including the organic pesticide, BT. Caterpillars usually take from one to three weeks to reach pupation size.
** Butterflies can eat a great deal during the larval stage. Please be certain you have the correct amount of host plants if you are ordering larvae.**
