    Natasha… just a thought if you have them indoors. Make sure you don’t have any pest repellents in use anywhere. Even a dog/cat wearing a flea collar has been known to kill caterpillars.

    Are the cocoons outside? I am in Wellington and bring them inside so they are safe. In the cooler weather they take much longer, my caterpillars in J’s take days and days to make a chrysalis. Not all caterpillars successfully make a chrysalis.
