Io Moth


After nearly a year of anticipation one of our cocoons has been vacated! We now have a female Io moth. At dark, she will let loose her pheromones and perhaps we will have 4 males outside in the morning. They can detect the females from far away.

We have 2 other cocoons still. We nearly gave up hope for all of them.
