Here I thought nothing ate monarch butterflies or even the caterpillars. I thought the milkweed juice was toxic to other birds or insects.

But not this bad boy! He's been munching down my monarch caterpillars. I've not seen many this year and as soon as I see one and mark the plant, they disappear. Now I know why.

I figured they would be capable of doing this. After all If I am correct the female kills the male after breeding

The brown ones are the males. The green ones are the females. At least that is what we were always told. Now watch someone prove me wrong.
