When do caterpillars turn into their cocoons?

Thanks for the feedback!
A caterpiller makes it's christalys by spinning thread arround it's body.
yes u duck how would it survive
The silk comes out of their mouths, and they're constantly in motion while they're weaving their cocoons.
they can. But the can make cacoons in virtualy anything, from flower stems to bicyle handle bars. as long as it is elevated and has someting for it to attatch itself to.
It chews its way out since it eats leaves its cocoon is almost like leaves.
The length of the cocoon stages depends on the type of caterpillar. For Monarch butterflies it is 10 days long.
yes a catipiller makes it a cacoon out of its saliva
to become a buterfly or a moth of different types and sizes hope that helps
Anywhere! A cocoon is a silk 'sleeping bag' that some species of moths make. Inside the cocoon, the caterpillar changes into a pupa. From the pupa emerges the adult moth. A ca…terpillar may travel over 100' before it selects a spot to make its cocoon. Some species normally make their cocoons in trees, such as the Polyphemus Moth. Others sometimes make their cocoons in the leaf debris at the base of their host tree, like the Cecropia moth.
No some moths go on the ground and most caterpillars hang upside down and some stay on the ground
we just got the bugville butterfly house, and our caterpillars (painted lady) stayed in their cocoons for 12 days. it really depends on the type of caterpillar. hope this help…s. Lissa
If you leave it there, and nothing else comes along and eats it, then eventually the bottom of the cocoon opens up and a moth or a butterfly struggles out. It sits in the air …for a while drying out, then it flys away. If it's a moth, it lays eggs, never eats, and dies.
Before a caterpillar makes a cocoon, it eats like crazy increasing its size. Then it finds an appropriate place to make a cocoon where it is unlikely to get eaten while it… changes into an adult insect.
Overwintering eggs hatch early in the season, then the caterpillars start eating like crazy and building their tent. they become fully grown by late spring or summer, and …during the growing process they can actually eat every leaf from a tree, so that the tree must redevelop all of its leaves.Once the caterpillars are grown they wander off and hide themselves in well protected places such as a piece of tree bark laying against rock.There they spin silken cocoons for themselves, then moths emerge from those cocoons in a few weeks.
