Timing emergence for Saturniidae

I have been donating various silk moths to a local butterfly house.  I have
also been conducting slide programs and night hikes back to the butterfly
house to view the moths.  My questions is: Does anyone have any working
experience with delaying adult emergence in order to have adults available
on a specific timetable?  In
other words if I have adults that will emerge this week, but I would like
some to be "fresh" in 2 weeks, what can be done?  Is there any accurate way
to accomplish this? 

Many thanks in advance.
