    I’m anticipating I will run out of food for my tiny caterpillars, so I’m keen to offload about 20 very little ones. I’m in Berhampore for collection. I would consider posting via overnight courier as they are very small at the moment.

    I have a massive Swan plant which came with us last year after a move from Hamilton to Mosgiel..I seen some Monarchs here last year but as yet seen none this year here.. Just wondering if its something to do with being 280 meters above sea level.. We will be moving to Allanton ( near seas level) , just down the road in a month or so and will dig up the swan plant and take it with us.. So i have heaps of food on this plant. Email me as i dont come here much kiwi.trader@hotmail.com
    Cheers

    Hi Rob, Has anyone given you any caterpillars? I’m pretty sure I can. I live in Seatoun. I am sending some to Oamaru today so will check how many I have. Hundreds of my plants have been stripped bare. Caryl on 027 8426773 or catlovercaryl@gmail.com – Hope to hear from you.

    Hi Narelle,
    Do you still need a home for your caterpillars? I have excess swan plants that I would lie to have more cats on.

    Hi Narelle, I have been doing just what you plan to do – cost is $8.50 being $5 for the NZ Post bubble bag and $3.50 overnight courier. I would suggest you send small ones but not those that are still anchored to the plant with silk. They are too small to handle. Bunnings, Lyall Bay, have excellent strong stemmed plants at $3.38 each. I maybe able to give you a contact name and email for a person to send to. Email me please on catlovercaryl@gmail.com
