The same nice man from Long Island, NY, that sent me the luna eggs last year sent me some cecropia moth eggs recently, and three of them have hatched so far today. Even if they all hatch, I won't have too many, at least I hope I don't!! :)
Anyway, you can't get more beautiful (or bigger!) than a cecropia moth - if I redecorate my house, I plan to use the cecropia colors as the color scheme for my entire house, with varying shades used more in some rooms, and other shades used in other rooms, but every room incorporating some of their colors. I think it'd be gorgeous!
Here's a picture of my cecropia nursery. I took an old bouillion jar, punched a small hole in the top, added water, inserted a fresh piece of wild black cherry new growth (is there any more useful tree for raising moths and butterflies than prunus serotina?), put the eggs on the lid, and now that they're hatching, they've climbed up on the leaves. I put this in a plastic container that I covered with mesh, which I secured to the top of the container with clothes pins. Then I put this in a reptarian cage - when the cats are bigger, I can let them roam around freely in the bigger cage.
Here's a close-up picture of one of the hatchlings - they're just fuzzy little black things!
I'm looking forward to raising this bunch! :)
