Chinese Oak Silk Moth

I have been given these, along with some Emperor moth caterpillars  to rear
for my local primary school !

I have been unable to find any literature about the Chinese Oak Silk Moth
anywhere (local library network quite useless!)  My own literature is
limited to native species.

Is their care the same?

What are the requirements for successful pupation? This stage is fast
approaching judging by the rate at which they are demolishing the hawthorn
which I am providing.

As the Chinese Oak SIlk Moth is non-native what should I do with the adults
(if they emerge!)

Thanks in advance
