TOTALLY AMAZING!!!! Dean, you blow me away. I showed this to my husband and he could hardly believe his eyes! I was talking about you last night to several people, telling them how you have inspired me to raise larvae too! By the way, I have 55 caterpillars, so hard to believe, that little stick I brought into the house was so small and had so few of the eggs that I saw there! Amazing, they are such piggies, growing very fast!

As ever Janet, thank you so much for your lovely compliments. :-) I'm really pleased that I've inspired you to take up my favourite pastime. Good luck with your munching hoardes; you'll be even busier soon. ;-)
