    Hi Carols

    I have about 65 caterpillars that I need to relocate. Can your plants cope with that and take them? I’d be hugely grateful. I live in Flat Bush, South Auckland, where do you live, happy to drop them off (although it would be later today). Can you please text me on 021 140 9071 as I’m going to be away from my computer now. A billion thanks. Kathryn

    Hi Carol I have a brand new batch of caterpillars and no food for them, my plants are still recuperating from the first batch I had. If you have plants or know of anyone who would like some caterpillars please let me know @ jolandie.bothma@gmail.com 
    Hope you can help

    Your estimate of about 30 caterpillars was just a bit short dabnium…
    I counted them as I put them onto my plants and there were 204!! lol 🙂
    And I’ve kept “Scar” in a separate castle so I can monitor his/her progress.

    Hi carols,

    I wonder if there is anymore room on your swan plant?

    All summer the wasps have been feasting on our tiny monarch caterpillars, but in the last couple of weeks the wasps have suddenly disappeared. We now have about 30 big, hungry caterpillars who are rapidly demolishing our swan plant.

    Thank you!

    UPDATED 10 Jan 2013 – I no longer have plants, and cannot take any caterpillars, sorry.
