    How long ago did you put the netting over your plant? Give it a couple of weeks (at least) to see if that fools the wasps. Do you see Monarch butterflies laying on your plants?

    Do you see any dead caterpillar around your plant? Do you see the Asian wasps feeding on the swan plant? The Shining Cuckoo will feed on the caterpillars as they are immune to the poison that affects all other birds. How big did the caterpillars grow before they went missing?
