Is there a recommended way to get wild caught female sphinx moths to lay
eggs? I know the paper bag trick works good for silkmoths- will it also
work for sphinx and hawkmoths? I have placed some in paper bags where they
remained for 1.5 days with no ova laid. Any suggestions? Do they need the
host plant also? I am especially referring to Abott ,
small-eyed,one-eyed,huckleberry,waved and big poplar sphinx. Any help would
be appreciated. I would like to get a few ova and then release them. thanks
