Congrats on the milkweed success! We have milkweed we planted this year but it got infested with aphids. I bought a container of 1500 ladybugs for US$10 and put them on the milkweed where they ate most of the aphids. Unfortunately the ladybugs flew away after two days and the aphids came back. We keep hammering the aphids with water blasts to contain them, but no Monarch eggs, although we've seen a few Monarchs. Our parsley in the herb pot gets eaten down to the stems nightly, snails maybe?
