Quick Overview

Medium caterpillars will take three to four weeks to reach pupation size, and large caterpillars will take two to three weeks. The only difference between medium and large larvae is their age. Polyphemus Moths can only be released in Florida. In all other states they must stay in an enclosure during their entire life cycle. 

Adult Polyphemus Moth Wing Span:

5 3/4 - 6 1/2  inches

Antheraea polyphemus

 Experience the wonder of metamorphosis! If purchasing larvae, they will need a food source when they arrive. You may purchase your host plant from Shady Oak Butterfly Farm or from a local plant nursery. Here at Shady Oak we sell Oak Trees to feed Polyphemus Moths. If ordering elsewhere, be certain the plant has not been sprayed with insecticides, including the organic pesticide BT. One 6" potted plant will typically feed 2 larvae. 

** Moths can eat a great deal during the larval stage. Please be certain you have the correct amount of host plants if you are ordering larvae. **
