My friend DJ has a pocket prairie in his front yard on South Bass island in Lake Erie. He reported seeing a monarch, so I checked some of the common milkweed in his prairie/garden. I quickly found a 2nd instar and 3 eggs. DJ then joined me and we found 4 more eggs. One plant had 2 eggs near the top on separate leaves. We did not check all the milkweed in the yard, so there may have been even more eggs/larvae. But the mosquitoes we're after us!
