Habitat Project

Date: 10/14/2017

I have a Monarch way station that feeds butterflies,bees and various other insects and birds. I have had the most success with tropical milkweed which the Monarch caterpillars love but I also have several species of milkweed that are indigenous to our area. For the first year I have had issues with tachnid fly and a few cases of OE. I constantly seek to educate others about the fragile creatures in our yards that struggle to survive in spite of our actions. Most people when they are exposed to the glorious Monarch become entranced with them and more likely to support an environment conducive to their success.I love helping them and feel they have enriched my life so much. I also would like to see more support for other butterflies and pollinators in our area which although a farming community seems unaware of the damage done by indiscriminate pesticide use and damage to natural habitats. I have become attached to Queen butterfly larvae as well as they seem to grow side by side with Monarchs and resemble them. Milkweed tussock caterpillars have also become one of my favorites.
