This year we made an effort to help our Butterfly Friends by fostering some of the Monarch and other Butterflies that they needed help with aka they ran out of food*
It happens. We raise the eggs and cats in special containers inside. When they pupate, their silk is strung up and scotch tape is wrapped around the silk to make a hanging tag. The Chrysalis is then pinned to the Foam Noodle and put in a Mesh Butterfly Cage (Which I call the Patio Flight Cages).
This allows the Butterfly to pupate according to the Native environment, and not the temperature of our house.
This day I had a Roost of Monarchs ready to fly.
