    We are new to this society, and are having a problem with our eggs and caterpillers disappearing. We have four healthy swan plants and covered them with fine netting to see if this would help but they are not their after a couple of days, is this wasps or what???

    How long ago did you put the netting over your plant? Give it a couple of weeks (at least) to see if that fools the wasps. Do you see Monarch butterflies laying on your plants?

    Do you see any dead caterpillar around your plant? Do you see the Asian wasps feeding on the swan plant? The Shining Cuckoo will feed on the caterpillars as they are immune to the poison that affects all other birds. How big did the caterpillars grow before they went missing?
