Just wondering if the space diet we used is somewhere on line for sale. I checked the Monarch watch store, really could not find it. My thoughts are, by the end of this week I should have 5 or 6 new monarchs. Hopefully they will mate later and I can start over on the cycle again. Not trying to be greedy, but...since my tropical plants will not be ready to carry a full load of larva,it would be nice to put the larva on the feed, give the plants another week or 2 to grow.
I know now I can switch the 4th to 5th instars to what I have frozen in milkweed and get them through, I have lots of frozen, but none of my younger larvae survived on the frozen. Either it was survival of the fittest, since I did not sort the sizes out to well, or the young ones just could not tolerate frozen, thawed, milkweed. Any thoughts.
