Okay - so today while I was outside collecting EBST babies to raise in my butterfly cage, I witnessed another female Monarch ovipositing on my tropical milkweed. Do I dare try to raise them again?
What advice would you give.... because my success with Monarchs has not been as good as I would like - especially with the recent death of the 8 babies I had.
And as a side note, I found another batch of lacewing eggs just as large as the first batch on a different tropical milkweed. So if nothing else at least I'm hopefully keeping the aphids in check.
