The larvae apparently love white sapote foliage! I noticed several of the bird dropping-like caterpillars on my young sapote in October. I let them be (about six reached maturity), hoping to see the chrysalis. But they crawled down the tree when they were ready and disappeared into my yard! Any tips on finding the chrysalises? Stands to reason they're somewhere in the vicinity.

Ive noticed my Giant Swallowtail catterpillars falling off the wild lime tree. I was hoping to grow them into adults and twice I found them on the ground. I do not see the adults like previos years.
