Butterfly Host Plants For Gauteng

Butterflies have very specific plants (host plants) that they will lay their eggs on, and this differs from species to species. The caterpillars that hatch from these eggs can either feed almost exclusively on one species or they will feed off of a number of host plant species across a few genera and families.

There are some plant species that will support a number of different caterpillar (butterfly) species.

Butterfly Gardening Notes 1 - Parasitised Caterpillars

Have you ever seen those strange looking caterpillars with tiny white "spikes" on its back? We have often been asked if caterpillars carry eggs on their back, and this time we decided to ask a butterfly expert for more information. Steve Woodhall, master Lepidopterist, regularly helps us at Random Harvest Indigenous Nursery to answer questions on anything butterfly or caterpillar related. Here is what he said about this strange creature. The white egg-like things on the hairy caterpillar (which is probably a Tricolored Tiger Moth, Rhodogastria amasis) are Braconid wasp cocoons.

Easter Bunny's Shy Cousin - Easter Eco-Fact 4

The real Riverine Rabbit would not be found in nature, on forest floors, with plenty of compost, mulch and Plectranthus ciliatus as our Random Harvest Bunny was pictured in the nursery. It in fact has a very specific area that it occurs in – only along rivers in Nama and Succulent Karoo areas, in the Central and Small Karoo.  In other parts of the country, you will find hares, which are related to the Riverine Rabbit.

The Shot Hole Borer Beetle Crisis

We are on the brink of an ecological disaster, all because of the Shot Hole Borer Beetle. Trees are dying and FABI has indicated that natural control is not in the pipeline at this point.

Judging by the numbers of dead trees killed by Shot Hole Borer Beetles in Johannesburg and Knysna, this could become one of South Africa’s worst ecological disasters.  While the beetles are primarily encountered in towns, there is a very real possibility, that they can spread out via tree corridors and start killing trees in the veld.
