We found our first batch of eggs on May 23rd. All together we had 17 caterpillars and now or first batch of caterpillars have turned Chrysalis. We were excited to find so any eggs on our first attempt at hunting. So needless to say we have gotten off to a great start and hoping for a great season.

Absolutely, no Monarchs here in my backyard so far this year. Just tons and tons of aphids. But, I continue to prepare for their arrival. Just planted 4 flats of tropical milkweed.
