When cocoon arrives, unpack and submerge it in water for 60 seconds before setting down in the insect house. Place a twig or small branch in the house to give moth somewhere to hang once it emerges. Spritz cocoon lightly with water every other day until you see your moth. The luna moth's wingspan will be 2” to 4” wide! Keep your moth in the insect house for up to 2 days, then release in a dark or shady spot outside.
