Welcome!

Thank you for visiting my website.

Too many times in my life have I been searching every corner of the internet for information on specific species of butterflies and moth, without being provided accurate information in regards to rearing them. Most websites seem to either focus on the breeding aspect, or on their general biology. This website focuses on both kinds of information – anything relevant to rearing, aswell as general biology.

My website aims to spread knowledge of different species of Lepidoptera from all over the world  with accurate and relevant information with emphasis on rearing them. Not only is this website limited to Lepidoptera though, it also contains general information on other insects in captivity, and advice on how to take care of Lepidoptera.   Cultivating interest in insects and creating easily accessible information (for both professionals and the ‘common man’) about them is something that could seriously boost future conservation efforts if done on a large scale.

For more information about this website and it’s future goals please read about this website.

  7. Hey there! I have been searching all over the Internet for a place that may have some answers in terms of how to care for adult moths, hopefully you can help me. I am having some trouble getting my Hawk moths to feed. I have looked online and found a few people saying that hand feeding is the best way, but I feel like that would do so much damage to the body of such a delicate creature, not to mention destroy the scales with just the handling with your fingertips. I tried (and was as gentle as possible) but they struggled and the result was a lot of leftover dust on my fingers. For obvious reasons they don’t seem to like that at all, and from what I saw as soon as you get the proboscis into the nectar liquid, they will usually start feeding and settle down, but that wasn’t the case with mine.

    I know they are feeder type, but I just can’t seem to find any information other than people telling to hand feed. If you have any suggestions or comments it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
