Black Swallowtail Infestation

Guard your parsley! The black swallowtail butterfly is looking for it. We went outside the other day and found almost all of it eaten. One caterpillar can eat a lot but we found 28. One of Marcie's ex-co-workers has a butterfly house so we gave them to her. We went out again today and found three more that we missed. One we saved on purpose so we could see how big it would get. I'll try to get a picture of that today if it's still there.
