4 Giant Swallowtail Caterpillars: Last year we planted multiple host plants, including 3 small prickly ash trees and a hoptree, host plants for the Giant Swallowtail. I’ve occasionally seen a Giant Swallowtail fly through our yard. Today I found 4 Giant Swallowtail caterpillars on 1 of the prickly ash trees. A good day!
