Giant Silk Butterfly facts: 

The scientific name of the Giant Silk Butterfly is Saturniidae. Originally a Giant Silk is a moth and they draw their collective name from the fine silk they use to spin their cocoons. This fine silk serves as protection for the pupal stage in their life cycle. The life cycle of a Giant Silk is pretty simple: hatch, eat, grow, pupate, emerge, mate, lay eggs, die; and that all in the span of one year!

In late spring and early summer adult Silks emerge from the cocoons where they have spent winter. Adults emerge from their cocoons in daytime, usually around mid-morning. This means they have the warmth of the day to inflate and dry their wings in preparation for the evening’s flight.

When darkness falls the Giant Silks begin their sole function: reproduction. Adult Silks have no working mouth parts. They do not feed or drink and will only live for one to two weeks after emerging from their cocoons. Males seek out the females by scent. Females have strong pheromones and wait for the males to find them. The males’ large comb-like antennae can detect the pheromone at minute concentrations.
