A quick side note to this.  You will be able to tell if your io eggs are
fertile if the small spot (micropyle) on the top of the eggs turns black.
This color change should take place within a week.  This is a nice little
feature of most Automeris eggs.  Your eggs should hatch in 2-3 weeks if
they are fertile.
