Every day I am finding about 3 caterpillars, on the swan plants in the garden, all growing well. Just to be on the safe side I am placing them indoors in the large caterpillar castle. Whilst Asian Paper Wasps are no longer eating eggs and caterpillars, the Praying Mantis and Shield Bugs are still going after their prey that includes caterpillars.
Right now I have 15 chrysalis's and 18 caterpillars under cover.
This morning we have seen three lively male Monarchs fly off to the butterfly lives.
How beautiful they are.
