Actias luna moth caterpillars
Wild Saturniid Silk Moths such as Luna moths start thier life out as a egg. once they hatch they will roam around and get thier bearings to find food. Luna moths are gregarious for the first two to three instars, but separate and live independently after that. Luna moths go through five instars before they spin a cocoon. During these five instars they eat walnut, pecan, and sweetgum. We have found they like Sweetgum the best.
