As Mike Soukup already stated, these guys are single brooded and you are
probably better off just putting them in a protected spot outside
(especially if your stock is of local origin).  Also keep in mind though
that the Ceanothus Silkmoth (H. euryalus) is a bit notorious for lying over
an additional year.  If all of your cocoons don't hatch next spring then
don't just assume they are dead and toss them.  Check them carefully as
some may wait till 1999!  They have done it to me on a number of occasions.
