We've been getting heaps of these caterpillars lately. They seem to be all over the place and are easily seen when I mow the grass and they are there crawling along. They also hang out on the yellow daisy plants that I have which is understandable as that is where the butterfly that I think these come from used to hang out.
They don't bother the vegies so we don't dispatch them like we do the little green ones that eat the cabbages.
Grandaughter says they are cute because they have *sparklies* on their back.
Hi I live in the Peel Region of WA. We grew all our vegetables during 2010 and will do the same this year but I also want to get fit enough to wander the countryside, climb big rocks and swim in
lakes and rivers.
