If you find any that you would like to rear, place them in a container in a cool (but that doesn't freeze in the winter), dark place, such as an outdoor storage closet or enclosed porch. Check on them periodically through the winter in the event they become too warm and emerge early. Start checking them daily in March or April, and move the pupae to a larger container with rough walls or a stick they climb on once they emerge.
