These seem to be running all over my concrete courtyard, hiding in the cracks. Pretty small but not tiny. Any ideas?

I'd say 1/16" (1.6mm), maybe a bit smaller. And pretty quick for a bug that size.

The fact that they’re just cruising around on the ground makes me think they’re not a garden threat. But I could be wrong... still, you’d think they’d be on a plant or looking for a plant if they were a plant foe :hmmmm:

This is hanging off my windowsill. It's about an inch in total length. Some sort of pupa I'm guessing, but friend or foe?

A Monarch butterfly to be exact. They are becoming endangered so let it hatch. Catapillers only feed on milkweed, so should be no risk to cannabis.:nomo:

I used to raise them as a kid. They actually migrate annually between North and South. Certainly my favorite critter in the insect world.
