    Hi, Ants certainly take eggs and I’ve seen them even eat hanging J’s and crystalysis. They can bite them and a bead forms and next thing they’re sucked dry. As soon as they hatch they will be taken by wasps and probably spiders. I’ve seen preying mantis of course and vegetable shield bugs slurping them. Unless the plant is hidden there is often not much chance of anything surviving outside not covered unfortunately. I have about half? my really big cats survive to eclose if I put them outside. Liz

    No butterflies here in Glen Eden Auckland. We had a few earlier and I’ve had 10 cats which I fattened up indide. I notice a community garden in Henderson with lots of swan plants (opp 96 Millbrook Rd) had lots of cats surviving. So at least the odd spot has attracted some. Also a few in the local community house garden.
    My parents nr Coromandel town also hand-rear them and say none around after first few (nor any bumblebees there).
