Product Details:

Cochineal Bugs

The Cochineal bug is found in desert locations in Arizona, New Mexico, and California to Montana, Colorado, Texas, Florida and North Carolina. They feed on the juices of the cacti plant, especially the prickly pear cacti.  

The best cochineal is dark and full of carminic acid. We obtain only the finest grade cochineal on the market.  You will need a small amount of Cream of Tartar to extract the dye from the dried insects.

Bright reds to magentas.
