Polyphemus moth update!

I have had three of the six caterpillars that made it into Cocoons hatch as of July 27th. First, two males,July 24th and 25th and finally a girl this morning, July 27th! Im not sure what Im goin to do if they mate,raising them is a lot of work and this brood will overwinter.  I have seen how ants invaded thier cage on my sunporch and know they cannot stay inside or they will hatch when food is not available. It is simply awesome to see these huge moths go through their entire life cycle!
