Eucalyptus, (Blue Gum), is their normal food source, however they can also take to eating Rosebush, Bramble (raspberry, etc), or oak.

Gosh, won't those be illegal?
Sounds like we need them to kill the invading Gums! :)

Did you go and count each egg?

When will the babies be hatching and ready for new homes?
It is easier to ask for forgiveness than permission.

Those who are afraid to ask are ashamed of learning.

Yes I went and counted each and every egg and yes I was up until 2am in the morning :shock: I don't have OCD by the way just in case you were wondering ;) They take 4 months to hatch!
