Greetings Actias once again,
My butterfly rearing has gone south.
Ever since July 7th, My out door 5 ft by 3 ft butterfly cage has had the worst luck.
Every wild caught butterfly has only lived 3 hours- 1 day.
‘It’s been very sad to watch all the specimen die.
They have a diet of water, flowers, honey water, and banana.
The temp is 61-92 degrees F.
Species include Papilio Species ex- Glaucus & Polyxenes.
Viceroys, red spotted purples. Nymphalis species ex- Mourning Cloak
Satyrs, wood nymphs, and Polygonia. Fritillaries.
please tell me what is happening.
