We are very excited that our monarch larvae arrived today!
We are wondering about the dowel though. What is it for?
Also, and more pressing, can Glacier VitaminWater be used for the nectar or is Gatoraid best?
Lastly, we noticed in all of the photos of the rearing chambers the vitamin/pill boxes have one lid closed over the food. How many feeding/pill box openings should we fill and should we keep some of them closed. If so, how many should be opened at any given time and how many closed?
Forgive us if we are complicating things, not trying to do so. Really.
Just want to get this right.
Thank you not only for answers but a huge thank you for the terrific opportunity to participate in this amazing experience!
