Monarch Egg (FIRST sighted)
Sightings report image

Date: 04/11/2019

Number: 10

Multiple Monarch eggs were sighted on the stems and leaf undersides of 5-6 plants in an open lawn area. The plants were common milkweed (Asclepias syriaca) and the original was locally rescued from a developed site years ago.

Unfortunately, 1 plant was a casualty of a weed-eater by a neighbor's lawn care workers. Another plant was stepped on by a pest control company employee. The eggs and caterpillars were salvaged and will be taken to a local school and placed back on the plant upon return.
