    I found a large Green Katydid near to my Pupas this evening. I see online that some types eat caterpillars – but the types were not identified. Does anyone know if they are “safe” and merely leaf eaters or if they will harm the caterpilars or pupas?
    Thanks Fi

    Hello Fi – you’d have to first identify what sort of katydid it is. Best to send a picture to Naturewatch NZ (google them) or you can post a picture on the FB page. Please let us know when you’ve identified it – and if it would be harmful. Also… what area are you in, that often helps with the ID.
