Monarch Larva (FIRST sighted)
Sightings report image

Date: 04/17/2023

Number: 8

I found 8 Monarch caterpillars feeding on Antelope Horns Milkweed. Caterpillars ranged from 3rd to 5th instar in age. I brought all caterpillars in to an indoor habitat due to prevalence of t-fly in this area. Five of the 8 cats were infected with the parasite and died. However, three caterpillars have formed healthy-looking chrysallis.
