How long do hornworm moths live?
In respect to this, how long does it take a hornworm to become a moth?
7 to 14 days
what kind of moth does a hornworm turn into? Don't kill that tomato hornworm! Correction – September 25, 2017: The tomato hornworm turns into the five-spotted hawk (or sphinx) moth, not, the beautiful hummingbird moth, shown in the photo.
Similarly one may ask, how do you take care of a hornworm moth?
Maintain them at room temperature and expose them to a normal day/night cycle. The cage must have a vertical surface (cardboard, newspaper) that the moths can climb and cling to, or their wings will crumple as they unfold, and they will be unable to fly. Adult moths should emerge in 7 to 14 days.
Can you keep Hornworms in the fridge?
If for some reason you have extra-large hornworms and no one to feed them to, you can put them in the refrigerator (40°F-42°F) and it will extend their life for a few days.
