What a great post! I love raising caterpillars of all sorts, too.

Linrose, I have about 20 black swallowtail chrysalids overwintering as well as a promethea moth cocoon. I keep them in the garage as well. Be sure to check on them and spritz them with water every week. Remember that rodents like to eat them also, so they aren't guaranteed to be safe there.
