Nice to hear there are more saturniid enthusiasts here. I've raised polys too, never to adulthood before. I find them to be picky eaters. Im feeding the devils hickory which is
a lot of work to get but its worth it.
Tell me about those weird looks, Its not everyday you have a neighbor come to your house asking to feed a bunch of BIG caterpillars the leaves in their yard.
Oh yeah, I now have 5 prepupal larvae and 9 others that are still feeding, no pupae yet though.
