Welcome to this section created to provide informations on Lepidoptera breeding. TTB is dedicated to Lepidoptera breeding, focusing in Saturniidae and Sphingidae families. This section wants to provide a mixture of insect care informations and basic material related to insect biology. This section is still incomplete, many small articles are on-going!
