Rain vs monarch chrysalis

16 years ago

I live in Savannah, Ga. Has been raining nonstop for 24 hours, yes we need it but I am worried about our chrysalises. I have a large cylindrical butterfly habitat that zip closes at the top and the bottom, large enough to place two small potted milkweed down inside (now completely stripped by the caterpillars) There are about 12 nice looking chrysalises hanging down from the top of the habitiat and it has been outside this whole time. I put drying racks on either side with a boogie board across to block direct rain and the top of the enclosure is a hard plastic material, still am worried about them with all of this moisture lately. Will they be ok? Surely they get rained on when raised in nature, not by humans? Need reassurance! Thanks. Emily
