Observed and counted 19 chrysalis found in my yard today. Awaiting all of them to hatch. Observed 5 other 5th instar larvae ready to pupate into a chrysalis. No Adult Monarchs observed. All my milkweed in my garden is now completely defoliated by monarch larvae. A dozen or so caterpillars only have stems left to eat.
