how to move a chrysalis
Hi, Today at work on the side of the building there was a monarch chrysalis. I recognised it because when I was younger I had one of the kits to hatch them. It must have just formed today because the people at my work are neat freaks, and they would have surley nocked it off if they had seen it. It is mounted on a piece of siding, on the building.
The building I work in, is a siding company, they always clean it, like obsessive compulsive. Consittering the siding is grey and the chrysalis is bright green, it really sticks out.
I understand I can remove the chrysalis with a tooth pick, but any sugestions on how to mount it? (I have a tank I can put it in). I know its best to leave it but I guatentee by tomorrow it will be gone if I do. I also saw a site that said to break whatever it is off, and mount the actual material; for example if its on a brantch, break the brantch. They may get mad at me if I cut part of the siding off, so its probally better to remove the actual chrysalis. Just dont know what to mount it on, or what to mount it with (I dont want to use any kind of glue which vapors can carry through the membrane- I was thinking possably mounting it to a wire, with a glue gun- just dip the tip of the wire in the hot glue, waiting for it to cool down alittle, and just before it hardens just attach it to the chrysalis... does that sound good?)
