If you're not picky about what caterpillars come by, just grow a lemon tree from seed or buy a fully grown lemon tree. Black swallowtails will eventually pop by regularly to lay eggs. The caterpillars are quite cute. :P/>

wasp also lay egg in my aphids, aphids have no chance in the garden. IF it is not wasp, it will be ladybug will feed on aphids and mealy bug. Scale insect now will need butterfly - Apefly to feed on it.

I love the common rose butterfly! The red and the black is so striking! May I know what plants are they attracted to?

Aristolochia acuminata - common rose is not an easy species to attract . U need to be next to a forrested area to get it . Even if u buy the butterfly and release they might not come back to lay egg. It like cool shady area but the plant can handle full sunlight . I known people grown for 4 years before they attract the butterfly .

this is a relatively easy species to attract. After getting tylophora from Greenbaron 3 months back, these blue glassy tiger decided to lay eggs.
