Why should you choose between MacaKit and Bombyx?
With this Combo the magic of transformation is doubled! You will have the chance to witness to the metamorphosis of two different species at the same time, with a -10% discount.
With a single purchase you will be able to rear the wonderful Old World Swallowtail butterflies (Papilio machaon) and the famous Silkworms (Bombyx mori) at home: you’ll have the chance to closely discover all their secrets and to assist to their transformation.
Inside the box you’ll find all the necessary (feed, breeding containers and instructions) to make the silkworms and caterpillars completing their growth into adults.
The adult months, after the emergence from the cocoon, will mate and the female will lay eggs.
On the other hand, the Old World Swallowtail butterflies, once they have emerged from the pupae, should be released in nature to continue their life cycle!
These kits are an excellent gift idea to stimulate curiosity and spirit of observation for the nature lovers of all ages.
Due to a certain level of intrinsic physiological mortality, it may occur that, during the experience, some caterpillar or silkworm do not complete its metamorphosis.
In nature, the achievement of the adult stage is granted approximately to 1 caterpillar out of 50. With MacaKit we can assume with a good confidence that, following our instructions, at least 1 caterpillar will be able to complete the metamorphosis.
With Bombyx, once the egg-laying is completed, if the eggs are stored properly, they will let you repeat the experience next year.
The average length of the MacaKit is approximately of 30 days while for the Bombyx is approximately of 35 days.
Both Kits must be activated within 2-3 days from the receipt.
