The two caterpillars that successfully pupated did so on the underside of Milkweed leaves. The leaves look good and strong, so I will leave them for now. If the leaves start to die or look like they will detach from the plant, I will relocate the chrysalises to another location.
Inside my house, I suddenly developed a problem with flies last night. Some of them may be the predatory flies that are killing my babies, so I am desperately trying to get rid of all of them so I can bring my Milkweed plants inside and examine them.
Several other caterpillars are searching for a place to pupate. I'll keep you updated on their progress. (See photos below.) Our current average is just below 50% success rate. Hopefully, we can get that back up soon.
