How do I get rid of milkweed bugs that are killing my milkweed plants? I removed them by hand but these bugs are overrunning my butterfly garden. I do not want to use anything that might kill my butterflies.
Thank you.

Since the Milkweed Bug is considered a beneficial, there is nothing recommended to control them. Anything you could use would also kill the butterfly larva that also feed on milkweed plants. Wish I had a solution for you!
