I have counted 13 cats 1/4"-1/2" on a very spindly dill plant.
They are yellowish with black spots and a white stripe down the middle.
There are more eggs also.
Will this plant support all these cats?
I am not looking to intervene. This is the first time I have grown dill and anticipated either a nice dilled-lobster salad or some butterflies.
Of course, the cats won!
The plant is on my deck with some basil and cilantro.
What should I do? Stake the plant? Will all these cats survive? It seems like a meager food-source, once these cats get bigger. Will nature just take it's course and the larger ones win out?
Any help/ info is appreciated.
