2013 Monarch Butterfly Project

Postby Brooke » Mon Jul 01, 2013 3:01 pm

Monarchs are very late this year. Discovered first egg on June 1st. Last year I was releasing butterflies by the middle of May.

Egg hatched June 5 and became a chrysalis June 20.

First butterfly today, July 1, 2013.

Even though Monarchs are late there are about 80 chrysalises and perhaps 20 or more caterpillars and 30 to 40 eggs. Hope they are all healthy.

Using a new sanitizer this year. Much easier than using bleach and less traumatic all around.

This afternoon I saw a newly released male Monarch flitting around a Mourning Cloak butterfly for a few seconds before deciding she/he wasn't the one. :D
