Found three big monarch caterpillars today on my swamp milkweed. Can’t figure out where they have been hiding, I check the milkweed almost daily. To big to be from Monday’s monarch visit. Happy to see them!
@moore.794 I thought about removing some. But I have a lot of milkweed this year. Going to keep an eye on them for now. Most likely the birds will get ahold of many of them. I’m going to let nature do it thing.
I finally found some milkweed at a nursery. Last year the caterpillars ate it all before it even had a chance to from any flowers. And none of it returned this year. So I’m going to try this one in a big pot. These are already forming some buds.
