Seen a few lately in our driveway and garden by the large camellias and magnolia trees, a bee or wasp was chasing the monarch the other day which I haven’t seen before. I have lots of swan plants but nothing is eating them yet, years ago they ate them to sticks, but last 2 years the swan plant has lots of leaves going into winter, something is not right.
