On saturday, my partners, Sarah, Kai, and I, went to the ditch to do our first observations and measurements. Our group was assigned plants 326 to 357. We meet at 10 A.M and it was a successful time! Most of our plants were healthy and green. We saw a few Small milkweed bugs (SMMB) and even one caterpillar. The caterpillar was in it’s fourth instar. I look forward to seeing the other types of insects on our next visit!
