Problems,problems and problems

This is my first time raiseing tiger swallowtails. Can I raise them like I raise monarchs and black swallowtails? Just put the branch in and they eat it? Or do I have to do something different? If so, what and how do I do it I don't want to see my tiger population take another hit like two years ago.

RE: Problems,problems and problems

Although I hate to do it, (I'm a nature take it's course kinda girl) I have found that the predatory wasps in my area are so rampant that I had to screen my last batch in. But yes, if you are growing them in an enclosure already, just placing them on their food source and making sure there is enough of it should do well. Others with more experience will surely give their notes as well :)

I grow mine in a 5 gal aquarium covered with a cloth to keep out the predators.
