    Hi everyone
    My monarch caterpillars are dying when the reach medium size
    They have plenty of plants to ear and there are no visible fungi or aphids or harmful inhibitors on or near the plants
    What is wrong with them and how do I help them?
    The babies and older caterpillars are fine

    Hi Rebecca

    That’s pretty strange! Have you just bought the plants or did you grow them yourself? Keep the plants well watered – it has been very hot and perhaps the toxicity is too strong.

    I hope some other people will have some ideas. Meanwhile look at hot tags to the right such as “disease” and see if that rings any bells.

    Sorry not to give you a helpful answer.
