I am still enjoying raising butterflies and babysitting!
Twenty two Monarchs emerged today!
I found my first monarch eggs today. I found 24!
Looking forward to finding more very soon.
This year I had seven December butterflies! Next year I would like to try to have caterpillars in December.
Sunday, my first November monarch emerged! I have had six more emerge, 3 males and 6 females. Now I am waiting for one more!
All my monarchs dresses up for Halloween
Today-November 1st- I have 10 monarchs! 9 chrysalises and 1 large caterpillar. I am hoping to have butterflies over Christmas.
Last week one of my monarch butterflies laid 64 eggs! I am hoping I will be able to raise them. It looks like most of the caterpillars hatched! All my milk weed is dying so if anyone has good milkweed and is willing to share I would like some.
Yesterday I released my lasted and one hundredth monarch!
I did not reach my goal of 200 monarch butterflies but I did have 400 monarch eggs that I was able to share while I was on vacation.
Thank you Andrea, Megan and Adrian for taking care of my butterflies this week!
Megan and I released seven butterflies today. I had eight, but one escaped!
