monarch caterpillars survival when removed from milkweed
Please respond about this post appearing today on nextdoor.com. If this is not a good practice for survival of monarch caterpillars, please inform the public. Monarch Caterpillars Hello, Our son is obsessed with caterpillars...thanks, and we have a friend that gave us two monarch caterpillars from his land to raise into butterflies. The problem is, our yard only has one milkweed plant and it is not big enough for the two caterpillars. Does anyone have any extra milkweed they are growing or can share/spare? I know you can find it at the parks, but I don't want to pick plants at the park, and those leaves might have eggs on them already too. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
