How exciting. They are so small, they can be easily missed. Now you know just what to look for. Good luck.
I am currently rearing 67 cats. I have 2 that went into chrysalys this morning. I cannot wait for our first butterfly's of the year.
It ends up that whenever I go to the "grocery store" I end up bringing more babies home with me. I cannot resist to leave them there considering their odds of survival.
I was out getting food and found a 2nd instar, I was so excited until I saw that it was being attacked by an army of tiny red bettles. Very sad
All the more reason to feel the need to bring them home.
