Should be easy to rear, no special treatment. Pairing is in the morning  
until the early evening. Caterpillars are very gregarious, as most  
Anisota species. Caterpillars can be reared on cut food. I overwinter  
them in a closed container in the refrigerator for several months.

Anisota species can be a pest! So never release them in Wild!
