Food for the larva: oak and beech peat / regular household vegetable compost mixed with rotting oak and beech leaves / white rotten wood from beech or oak is also accepted

Pupal cell: dry sand is required for pupation when larvae start their wandering phase. cocoon stage lasts 3-4 months and adults will emerge during the rain seasons, – this is why spraying water is advised.
