I've been watching a yellow swallowtail cat for some time and today caught him off the dill plant and on the wooden frame of the raised bed. I was out gardening, so I put him in a glass bowl with saran (in the house) while I finished gardening.
Should I put some more dill in the bowl to see if he is going to eat? If he doesn't, I saw on you tube to put him in a half of toilet paper roll with a paper towel rubber banned on and I guess he will attach to the paper towel to make his chrysalis. Not sure what to do with him them.
I hadn't planned on raising them this year, I was going to try for the first time next year. But I hated to see this fellow crawl away to his doom.
Help would be much appreciated. I have two baby black swallowtails on the dill as well.
