I had numerous monarch caterpillars on my small milkweed patch, beginning a few weeks ago. My husband helped me build a butterfly house. I now have 15 chrysalises and 3 caterpillars. I have 5 others that have not survived. Two chrysalises fell and broke open. One caterpillar began a chrysalis, but died before it was complete. Two caterpillars have died. I’m not sure what caused any of the deaths except for the two chrysalises that fell. I’m hoping the rest survive to adulthood.
