Are my Swallowtails SICK or Dying?
I think I may have gotten some pesticide spray near my citrus with 4 GST cats.
This is my first experience with any CATS and I was sooooo looking forward to seeing these creatures mature into full grown butterfly adults!
A few days ago I found one cat dangling off his branch with his back legs still attached... he just sits there now for a few days.
the other 3 cats were acting normal until this morning when I found one of the cats on the ground - the other 3 dangling....
I quickly searched this forum and found a post about ooze - which I also noticed coming down from the tree where they were stationed.
If there is anything I can do to help the little guy who fell or the other 2 (now one is missing in the tree) that are now dangling.
The one that fell off is just laying on its side. I put him in a tupperware container and picked off a few citrus leaves hoping that it might get hungry and decide to eat again... any chance I can save them?
