Hello. I order from breeder and tag 400 Monarch every year (montreal, Quebec, Canada), but i saw a few mating last week-end (1-2 and 3 september); so i'm wondering...Is there some that are reproductively mature at those dates, so they won't travel?!?
Aren't they supposed to be in sexual diapause
I checked in the litterature, and the only thing i found was that they weren't able to mate (because in diapause_«Immature» «sexually speaking»).
Or will the ones that reproduce that late will have time enough to migrate (that's meaning they will become adult between mid-october, or later...)
I'm trying to find that information on a few articles wrote by Lincoln Brower but didn't find anything yet
hope to get answer/clue...If i do i'll post them!!!
