    Good Morning all!
    I live in Sumner, Christchurch.
    Our first eggs were laid 1 September, those caterpillars look large and fat as if they now very close to going into Js.

    I placed netting on my plants soon after those eggs laid but it obviously wan’t totally effective because I also have lower instars, more than I had planned.

    I would like to rehome those promptly. I got more swan plants last night so nobody is starving, but would prefer to not have such a spread out hatching season. I can deliver within Christchurch area.

    I have also posted this on Monarch matchmakers Facebook page

    Please give me a ring 021 02427375

    Cheers, Malin

    Also in Christchurch- have been on holiday for a week and have come back to dozens of caterpillars and my large swan plant that wintered over practically decimated. Oderings and Bunnings have no swan plants available. So looking to rehome several dozen if not more caterpillars or more swan plants, preferably both. In Merivale. 021 2504967. Cathy
