Question for someone!! my grandson had 2 caterpillars which made cocoons. It turned out that they were the Virginian Tiger Moth caterpillar and one has come out of its cocoon. About 3 days ago, it started laying eggs - and hasn't stopped yet! The other cocoon is still 'sleeping'.
What can I get to feed the caterpillars as they are born andalso, anyone know how long the incubation period for thiese tiny eggs is!
