I’ve also attached some pictures of my Cecropia project. One of the entomologists at the University gave me some newly hatched caterpillars in June, and I’m going to try to get them through to moths. I have already 9 cocoons, with another spinning now and 4 more to go. Anyway, they eat like crazy. If you look closely, you can see 10 of them in the picture. I had to put in new branches twice a day, for a while! I’ll send pictures of the moths if they make it that far. Thanks for a great site! Best wishes–
Lest our readers strain their eyes, we should state we cropped your images and some of the individuals are now on the cutting room floor. We also split your letter apart so the Stink Bug is on its own page. We look forward to continued documentation of the Cecropia Project.
