Yesterday Giancarlo, Wade, and I went out to the ditch in the morning. We observed plants 296 to 320. It was difficult having to look each plant in the tall grass. Many of the plants had not emerged yet, however we did have some larger plants with several stems. Much to my disappointment, we did not find a single caterpillar or egg on any of our plants. Hopefully in the next couple of weeks we’ll get to see a lot more caterpillars on the milkweeds!
