As for Wave 4, well they're coming on with a vengence. They are in the outdoor pavillion, and they are almost ready to pupate now! Literally overnight, about half of the Milkweed plants have been virtually denuded of leaves! These guys sure can eat. I have no idea how many are in there. I won't have a full count for a while yet. However, many of them are in instar 4 already! One thing that I have learned from this is that they mature much faster outdoors than indoors.
