Cool photo garden5.
Here's a twist. That hornworm we were going to watch turn into a moth?
DD8 just brought me the container and said "My hornworm is gone -- it's been infected by those wasps."
I peered in and sure enough there are about 20 wasp larvae emerging from the caterpillar... Just like those photos I posted last year. We discussed our options, and I explained that my primary concern is not allowing the wasps to eventually emerge inside the house as they would then go after the Monarch caterpillars.
It was kind of amusing that when I suggested taking the infected hornworm to a playdate tomorrow to show our friends, DD8 gave me an incredulous look and asked if I thought their friends (two boys, BTW) would be interested in seeing the hornworm being eaten by the wasps.
