What’s killing my caterpillars??

Any Monarch Butterfly lovers out there able to help?

This season, more than any previously I’ve been losing caterpillars of the Monarch Butterfly – 8 – 10 per day. They look like they’ve been stung or even bitten, but even in my secure butterfly enclosure the caterpillars are dying. If anyone has any ideas or hints I’d be glad to hear from you. As you can see in the pic many of them seem to lose control of their rear end & then progressively they die off to a shrivelled shell ??
