    I bought some swan plants yesterday and transferred my hungry caterpillars to them and this morning a number of caterpillars had died and others were dying. I wondered if anyone else had had a similar experience and if he/she can advise me as to whether it is the plants or if my caterpillars are suffering from an epidemic of something fatal. They seemed perfectly healthy yesterday so I inclined to attribute the illness and deaths to what they have been eating.

    Have you read the article under Species / Food Plants (I think)? Chave you contacted the garden centre and asked them if the plants could be sprayed? When you do contact them make sure you get the name of who you speak with. Please also email me. Jacqui@monarch.org.nz with details. Plants being sold should NOT be sprayed
