Our totals for 2013

Postby skates4marty » Sun Dec 22, 2013 8:48 pm

The Monarchists of Anne Arundel County (5 people this year) raised and released 214 butterflies.

I read that the overwintering population was 80% lower than the 20-year average. Last year, we had seven Monarchists who raised 1,081 butterflies, so we saw an 80% decrease this year.

Mine was a disaster of a year...1,602 in 2012...2 in 2013. I can only hope for some improvement else its just me and the other native 'flies.

Didn't find one egg in 2013. Finally saw my first monarch in the fall and only saw 3 all season. Very disappointing.
