Is it safe to say....?

My polyphemus cocooned one month ago. Is it safe to say we will be putting her up for room and board over the winter? I'd like to relocate the aquarium from our front porch if so.

In my neck of the woods, I'd be unsure. As far north as you are, I'd say you will see the moth next year. I suggest you do NOT keep it inside because polys are known to come out in December if the cocoon isn't exposed to the cold weather. I found that out the hard way with my very first poly.
