On the Monarch caterpillars... I unfortunately still have 1st instars and a
few eggs back at my office as the milkweed I collect continues to have eggs
on them....even three days ago I got a milkweed with an egg and a tiny
caterpillar. Looking back on my tagging data I have had good Monarch
migration days as late as October 15th, so your chrysalises aren't *that*
late. I have released adults after Halloween in the past! If you want to
give them a head start you can drive them down to Dartmouth, though
(hahaha).
