    I had quite a number of caterpillars on my new plants …. just little babies! This is my third ‘batch’ of cats having had the 2 previous lots pupate. Yesterday I went out to look at them (which I spend a surprising amount of time doing!!) and the little ones were gone!! Where would they have disappeared to? I’ve checked the surrounding area and they’re nowhere to be seen. Any ideas?

    Or devoured by ants or praying mantis 🙁 🙁 You need to cover them or get them inside 🙁

    Sorry Becky, I didn’t notice this post. Your caterpillars were probably devoured by the wasps! That would be what it ws, at that time of year. I hope you’re having better success now.
