Observed adult female laying eggs on Giant milkweed.
First sightings 2021 of female laying eggs.
75 degrees Fahrenheit and low 59 tonight.
We always completely cut back any milkweed that does not completely die off over winter.
We have cleaned with peroxide and rinsed to prevent OE protozoa which causes deformity and death.
The milkweed is just slowly starting to get leaves with very little rainfall lately.
