Those photos of larvae and cocoons are great bugboy. I just wanted to include a photo of a fresh pair of these beautiful moths I reared to illustrate the quality of specimens you can obtain by hand rearing them. Of course you also have the option to release them as well, further boosting the population, as long as they are indigenous to the area. You might do as I do, release most and keep a few for your collection.

Beetlehorn, I most likely will release a fair amount of them. I have no need for that many. I am hoping to have success rearing more this year. One of my sons would like to display this at our county 4H fair this summer.
