once they cacoon wait for the moths to pop out and leave them together and watch them wait for a male to find a female and start to mate once u see them together put a plastic cup over them and just leave them a while and after a while a day or so u will see lemon yellow eggs afterthis u may want to waitalil longer to make sure she is done...once they lay the eggs wait for them to turn grayish black thenits ok to put them in the fridge untill u want to hatch them...i would put paper under them so u can colect the eggs easy they willprolly be stuck to the paper so u can just take the lil peice of paper with the eggs out...get back to me on this
