    Hi I discovered your sight several years ago and have meant to get more involved with your good work. I began collecting Monarch Caterpillars several years ago after I discovered that several were eaten by both a beetle of some kind as well as a yellow jacket wasp. Once again this year I gathered 6 caterpillars from a field that I know gets mowed. (I will work to get the land owner to postpone mowing until late October) Presently, because of the late start and the cold weather (It snowed and stayed in the upper 30’s low 40’s here in Concord, MA all day) my remaining 4 Chrysali have matured slowly. One butterfly emerged today. Another Chrysalis looks like it will come out tomorrow. The other two are several days away. I feel like I should drive them down to south. Please give my your advice. Should I release them and hope they catch a thermal out of New England? Perhaps UPS will take them to Arizona? The numbers are low and every additional gene in the gene pool helps. Please advise.
