Tobacco Hornworm (Manduca sexta) eggs, Certificate for 200 eggs
Manduca sexta, also known as the Tomato Hornworm in its larval stage, and as the Hummingbird Hawkmoth or Sphinx moth in its adult stage, is an excellent species for classroom lifecycle study or as a model for scientific research. The larvae are large, easy to rear on artificial diet, and most important they are disease resistant. The caterpillar eats primarily tomato leaves and the adult is a nectar feeder. At room temperature the larval stage last between 3-4 weeks and the pupal stage about one month or less. Typical of most sphnigid moths, the hummingbird hawkmoth is a wonderful flier with a five inch wingspan and like the hummingbird, can hover in flight and feed without landing.
