Thank goodness for your web site. I have been looking 4 info on this thing 4 days. I live in N Indiana. Not having lived here for long… I was totally freaked when my daughter and her friend brought home "diffy" (as they named him). I took him all over the neighborhood questioning my neighbors. None of them had ever seen one before. My daughter brought it to school…no one had any info. So, thank you so much for the info that you provide! We had had him for a few days now and he seems not to be faring to well. Should I try and cover him w/ dirt and see if he coocoons??
Thanks so much!!!!
Give it a shot Sharon. Good luck. He would probably be getting sluggish before pupating anyways. He does not form a cocoon, but a naked pupa.
