Silkworms

Silkworms are super-duper nutritious and make an ideal food for your praying mantis. These are "Medium" Silkworms and are approximately 3/4 - 1 inch. They are soft-bodied, nutritious, grub-like caterpillars that your mantis friends can easily capture & devour. Each order includes enough mulberry food to feed your silkworms for a short time. You may wish to grow them larger by ordering additional food below. Instructions included.

Silkworm Food

This is food for silkworms, not food for praying mantis. The larger your praying mantis, the larger you can grow your silkworms (up to 3''), but you'll need silkworm food. Silkworms only eat the leaves of the mulberry tree or our prepared silkworm food, which is made from mulberry leaf powder and comes to you in a paste form. Store the food in the fridge and grate it over the silkworms when it's time to feed them. They should be fed at least once a day. Instructions included.

Please note- Our silkworms offered above come with enough silkworm food to last a week or so. If you will be keeping your silkworms longer than that or you want to grow them to a larger size, you'll need more silkworm food.

Feeder Egg Case
You may have heard that praying mantises are cannibalistic. It's actually more like indiscriminant. The praying mantis nymphs actually make a superb food for your juvenile and adult, and you get lots of bang for the buck. Just put the egg case in your enclosure and it will hatch in a few weeks, providing hundreds of little snacks for your larger praying mantis(es). The "feeder" egg case is guaranteed to be a large ootheca.

Note: If the newly hatched nymphs are a bit too small for your adult mantis, just let them grow for a week or two.
