I have never raised that many Monarchs, but I do raise several other species of butterflies for conservation. I have Zebra, Tiger, Giant, Black, Spicebush, and Pipevine Swallowtails to release when they emerge this spring, plus Promethea moths, too. During the summer I raised Red Spotted Purples and Viceroy, Red Admirals, Buckeyes, Silvery Checkerspots, and Pearl Crescents last year. Actually, I raise whatever species I find. How do you find them, just plant their host plants, they will eventually come if they are native to your area and you have the right habitat?
