    Thanks for the helpful advice, jacqui. Now, however, I’m not so certain the problem is wasps. I just read on the internet that praying mantises kill caterpillars and butterflies too.

    The fact is, I’ve never seen so many in my garden as this year, since I’ve started growing swan plants. And several have been absolute monsters, much bigger than any I’ve seen in the past.

    I think they may have been fattening up on my caterpillars! The only places I’ve seen them is in the immediate areas where the swan plants are growing. In fact, I’ve seen some giant ones on the swan plants themselves, several times.

    Alas, I had no idea of the risks, so left them alone. 🙁 I’m absolutely gutted about that now. I’ll be out hunting them first thing tomorrow. They can go in my back garden, which has no swan plants, and darned well like it!

    You have my sympathy, I think I may be going through a similar problem myself and it’s extremely frustrating. I’ve never been fond of wasps anyway, not since the time when one flew into my classroom and out of a room of 30-plus kids I was the one stung on the ear lobe! 🙂 I can smile now but it was pretty painful and I hate those rascals.
