    Hi Fi and Jacqui,
    Thanks for the answers.
    I’m glad that the butterflies wont get confused. I might bring some to work on Tuesday. I’m in Maraetai so there are a lot of people on FB saying they need homes for their caterpillars.
    I’m really lucky to work in an office which has a therapeutic garden. We have a lovely lady who comes in to tend to all our plants. Our biggest swan-‘tree’ had a branch fall over in the storm in the weekend – and it was the branch where the caterpillars seem to be safest from the wasps. Our gardener will come in on Sunday to tend to the plant – but I do have some tutu-netting at home which I think I will bring in. I was just worried about whether the butterflies could still lay eggs through it, and how to help the butterflies escape once they emerge. The swan-tree is about 2.5m tall, and I’m only 1.5m tall! I am all for annoying the wasps!
    Many thanks
