did there cocoon thing:
After a day we moved them into their new home, and waited a week, then in the middle of the night a week later, out they popped.

If you have little ones this was certainly a fun thing to do, Ayiana spent a lot of time observing them. We purchased ours from a company called Insect Lore, we have had praying mantis' hatch, these, and next year maybe will do Ladybugs or Silk Worms.
