Monarch cats are here

Found these and many other hungry boogers during my Lunch time garden stroll. I moved a dozen to the rearing house and the others will have to fend off the wrens and lizards on thier own.

Good for you!! The wrens and lizards should leave them alone; the wasps on the other hand...

Just look at the size of these tubby little cats! So happy you have taken some in to raise.

Leafhead, we have a lot of the red wasp in our yard. Do they really eat the Cats?? Must only be when the cats are small?

The paper wasps (Polistes) are the worst culprits.
The REALLY big wasps (Sphex) with the orange abdomens love milkweed nectar but do not bother cats.
