So I put a young tropical milkweed outside, then found two eggs on it, then brought it in to the store to raise them. They hatched and ate. We moved them to asclapia tuberosa. They ate and got very big. The last two days people have been telling me they do not look normal. They seem way bigger and darker. I wonder if they could be Queens? But I think it would be most unusual for Queens to be this far north. One is hanging in a J now. I guesse we will find out what they are when they come out of the crysalis. But if they are something odd I do not know who to tell about it.
