Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun I really enjoyed this. It was educational and everyone loved it. The little caterpillars lived to be moths and I think they lived a happy life. :)

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Fungal contamination a problem I've purchased manduca from Carolina in the past, with no problem - they've worked great. However, with the two most recent purchases, the larvae have been contaminated by fungus. Doesn't seem to be entomopathogenic, rather just a run of the mill environmental. It's not us, since we have other caterpillars that are unaffected, that we either obtain from other commercial vendors or that we maintain ourselves. So, definitely on Carolina's end. Ultimately, we're seeing reduced pupation rates in these individuals relative to what we've seen in the past.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everyone arrived safely and on time I just purchased this 6-pack of hornworm pupae for my naturalist class, and they all arrived on time and safely. I appreciate that the pupae came snugged inside a reusable container. They're fascinating to look at. Can't wait until the moths emerge.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 4 dead on arrival, injured survivors. When these arrived, I was very excited. I had prepared a lepidtarium for the adults after doing research on how best to care for them. However, when I unpacked them, I noticed only two had a healthy color to them and responded to touch when I placed them in their enclosure. The other four were stagnant. Despite this, I placed them in their enclosure and hoped for the best. They were placed in a warm, well ventilated room and checked on daily for developments. As I suspected, only two were alive, the others hadn't moved since arrival. When the two survivors hatched, I quickly noticed that the female had not properly developed wings or a proper proboscis during pupation. She emerged unable to fly and feed, and I don't expect her to last the week. I've provided a shallow dish with sugar water soaked paper towels, but she is unable to feed from it even with assistance. The male was better off, but still emerged with a slightly injured wing and a missing leg. I can only hope that he is able to fly. I am very disappointed with the health and handling of these pupae, especially given the time and money I put into obtaining them, preparing a lepidtarium, and anxiously waiting for them to emerge. I sincerely hope that Carolina Biological Supply take steps to ensure healthy, living pupae reach their customers in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High percentage of viable eggs--but a high price.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from not useful 4 moths hatched from the 7 pupae. One of them died during the hatching process, the remaining 3 all had crippled wings even though there was plenty of space for them and cardboard to climb up. So I couldn't use any of them for my students. I think those guys are too much inbread and degenerated like many other lab animals...
