FOR SALE, Black Swallowtail Butterfly eggs

Ad type
FOR SALE
Description

Papilio polyxenes --  Black Swallowtail Butterfly eggs.

$8 for first dozen (+ $5.00 each additional dozen) + $7.00 2-3 day USPS Priority Mail shipping.  Please use "Friends and Family" option to pay by PayPal.   U.S.A. orders only please. 

Foodplants: Any plant within the carrot family (Apiaceae):  Anise, Carrot (=Queen Anne’s Lace), Caraway, Dill, Fennel, Parsley, Parsnip, etc.  I use wild parsnip, which is abundant in wild areas here and has big leaves that are easily collected.  

Parents of eggs are from unrelated reared Iowa stock (F0), equivalent to “wild.”

Note:  Butterfly eggs hatch quickly, so USPS Priority Mail Shipping is required.  Eggs are sensitive to excessive heat, so please do not supply an address that delivers to a mailbox in the sun. 

The Black Swallowtail Butterfly has multiple broods each year, so the pupae that result from these eggs will not hibernate and butterflies will emerge from them within 2 weeks.
