In regards to Monarch extinction, I have been raising caterpillar eggs to monarchs and releasing them into the wild

My milkweed plants and monarchs are producing at least 4four to six eggs every other day from the flying monarchs passing through.


Already raised and released four, and am working with five, second instage and six, first instage infants. Eight eggs just brought in. Sunday I will be releasing a male monarch and have three chrysalis awaiting hatching probably within the next five to seven days creating more monarchs.

Just doing our part on keeping them flying
