The Q&A Archives: Classroom Caterpillar Egg Kits

Question: Where could I purchase a caterpillar egg kit for my students in preschool to watch turn into a caterpillar? I've read and heard about them constantly, but I never see and address or phone number to order them. Also, about how much would a kit cost? I'm also curious where you can purchase ladybugs or anyother types of insect kits? Thank you so very much. My students will be grateful too!!!

Answer: Try the company Insect Lore, PO Box 1535, Shafter, CA 93263, ph# 800-LIVE BUG. I have a catalog from 1996 that carries Painted Lady Butterfly larvae---and lot's of other insect-related classroom materials!
