Aphids from Milkweed?

Postby SpyderFemme » Tue Sep 09, 2014 4:49 pm

I was wondering if anyone had any knowledge about feeding aphids off of Milkweed to dart frogs.
Milkweed is toxic but not to the aphids or to the ladybugs that eat the milkweed aphids or the ants that milk the aphids so I was just curious...

The milkweed variety I have in my pesticide/insecticide free yard is Asclepias curassavica. We brought 10" of organic soil to cover the entire yard before we planted! I found termites yesterday and they feasted :lol:
