FOSS Living Materials Card - 75 Milkweed Eggs


MILKWEED EGGS (Oncopeltus fasciatus)

*When using Living Materials Cards, please allow 3-4 weeks delivery time.
An additional charge applies to shipments of living materials.

Care Instructions:

Eggs are shipped on a wad of floss and may be kept in the container at cool room temperatures, or refrigerated for short periods of time. Plan to introduce the eggs to students as soon as possible, as eggs hatch within a week of delivery. As eggs mature, their color turns from a pale yellow to deep orange. 

If they have hatched upon arrival, immediately have the students prepare habitat bags  (Part 2 of the Milkweed Bugs Investigation) and move the hatchlings directly into the bags.  Do not put them into vials as described in Part 1.

Please refer to the living materials literature included with your shipment or check the Materials section of your Teacher Guide for information on dealing with the organisms at the end of the module.
