I hate those stupid bugs!
My milkweed is growing at a tremendous rate this year and I have been blessed with some monarchs stopping by for some grub.
They reach under the leaves and lay a tiny egg in the bottom side. After a few days the egg hatches and cool looking worms pop out. I wont go through
the whole process here.
Anyways, just when I get 5 or 6 good size worms, they disappear. Wth?
Then i dig around a find a fat mantis lurking in the leaves. It's eating my damn butterflies!
This has happened several years in a row so now it's search and destroy time, no mercy....
