    I have had loads of Monarchs in the garden and have grown around 30 swan plants from seed (packet of seeds purchased and some from seed pods of existing plant). I have seen the butterflies mating and also laying eggs on nearly all of the plants but have yet to find a caterpillar. Any suggestions what may be going wrong?

    Wasps have been bad this year here. I am starting to wonder about the wonderful yellow shoulder ladybugs as well. They came on mass and cleaned up 99% of my aphids, now the egg numbers are dropping.
    I am now removing as many eggs as I can on their leaves each day and hatching in containers on moistened handy towels.

    Wasps and ants for sure. Google on wasps and ants in the hot tags and follow through with some of the suggestions there.
