Hi, Thanks for your article on "second shift pollinators." The reviews continue: extremely well done! My attention is now expanded to providing harbor for this member of Insecta... Can you recommend a source for raising (to release) moths?

It includes info on capturing wild moths in your area to get eggs. I'd suggest anyone thinking about raising moths should read this first and prepare for the details needed to help ensure success; like all babies they need to be kept clean, safe and properly fed while growing.
I'm having trouble Googling up a source of moth eggs or cocoons you can buy mail-ordered but they exist.
and another good source of info, (sorry, subscribers only) and maybe where to buy eggs/cocoons would be Dave's Garden Hummingbird and Butterfly Gardening Forum http://davesgarden.com/community/forums/f/bbb/all/
There are moth lovers in the bunch there.
Good luck on your moth mothering endeavors!
