Lifecycle information: The eggs hibernate. I found the eggs 1st of April, and they hatched on the 22nd of April. The total lifecycle from egg to imago was about 9 weeks.
Larval stages lasted 20-24 days
Pupal stages lasted 17-21 days
Difficulty rating based on % of individuals gotten through to imago(1=hard, 5=easy): 4/5

I keep a few specimens for my collection. The rest i release back into nature. Ofc there are some exceptions, like the northern species i've bred. For practical and economical reasons i cant rly go back to the north every year to release them, so i kept all the specimens for my collection.
