Subject: non plant question..any entamologists out there?

| Please forgive my spelling (entamologists?), as well as this question
since it is totally off subject...
| A friend of mine, became interested in raising catapillers/butterflies
after growing "butterfly attracting" plants.
| She has been raising the catapillers on an artificial diet, which is
fairly expensive....
| I am convinced that this "artificial diet" can probably be made by someone
in their kitchen (am I right?).
| If anyone out there has any experience in doing this or has any idea where
the information could be found, please let me know.....
| Much appreciation in advance. (I got so lucky with the GA3 info, I thought
I would roll the dice here).
