Monarch Butterflies

Asked December 11, 2013, 12:52 PM EST

My landscape is set up to attract and help to sustain Monarch Butterflies, unfortunately my milkweed, caterpillars, and emerging butterflies are being attacked by wasps and I am looking for help dealing with this problem. I am also having a problem with something eating only the flowers and seed pods on my existing milkweed. Thank you in advance for any and all help you might be able to give me. My name is Mary Lynn

Mary Lynn!Wasps are looking for nectar, but may also attack the caterpillars. Have you seen what is eating the flowers and seed pods?I'd need more information to help, such as a photograph.
