Hi Bugman,My daughter found this caterpillar in the green houses where she work at moore’s farm market in Beachwood NJ. Do you know what that is, maybe a swallowtail butterfly? Thanks for your time & knowledge 🙂

Black Swallowtail Caterpillar

Hi Jacqui,
You are correct.  This is a Black Swallowtail Caterpillar.  You can feed it parsley or even the tops of carrots from the grocery store.
