Hi! I’m new and totally not a scientist or biologist, so I apologize in advance if this is the wrong place to post this.
I’ve got a garden with a few pots of milkweed, and have about 6 large monarch caterpillars (about 2-3 inches in length)
I had one go into chrysalis on April 4th (so it’s looking like it won’t be coming out?)
I’m trying not to interfere and let nature take its course, but I lost one to a spider last week and if there’s anything I can do to help make sure this next ‘class’ make it through (aside from finding that spider!) I’m eager to help the monarch population.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! : )
