Silk moth sex

atractive silk moth laying eggs in a box

Our first silk moth showed up a few days too early and had nobody to mate with.

Turns out the dating window is only 2 or 3 days.

Luckily the next party was a bit more livelier with at least one female coupling with one of the males...and then one of the other males. Not long after that came the egg laying.
