Several eggs found on all sizes of common milkweed plants located on both the larger and the smaller patches in my yard.
Smaller patch, by our house, has not been found by bird predators and larva continues to thrive for the most part, plants are getting stripped and ceterpillars are eating every part including stems and pods.
Larger patch, away from the house out front, shows evidence of hatched early stage larva feeding off the leaves but have yet to see a caterpillar there.
Females continues to lay eggs on both patches.
