  1. What more should I comment, all done on FB 🙂

    So…after emerging, do they fly away or do you take it back to its host plant? They need the host plant for food, shelter etc… right? 🙂

    • Santosh ,After emerging they are let in their habitat.The adult moths do not depend on host plants for food.They need the host plants to lay eggs so that the caterpillars can feed on them.

  2. Great post!

    We had a few Lily caterpillars in our garden but I just couldn’t find the place they chose to form a pupa. They take hours to find a place to their liking!

    Oh also, do you use a field guide for insects? Could you recommend a good one?
