We have land right near Harvard, IL. How exciting. Our residence is further South and I've not seen one.

They have now arrived in Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada (north of Duluth, Minnesota). Two years ago I found over 400 eggs in my yard and last year only 9. Hopefully, the numbers this year will be much better than last year.

Not one monarch in my yard but I have collected numerous eggs and some cats from the wild. Each time I've been out collecting I have seen a monarch butterfly.

I hope to have around 45 make it and so far the majority appear they will. I am off to a good start compared to my historical norms. I'm in a northwest suburb of Chicago, Illinois.
