Monarch PEAK Migration

Date: 08/23/2023

Number: 38

All moving southward
A few nectaring
Every year we have many raised and using habitat
Occasionally depending on weather will see roosting in hundreds
Before my wife passed in 2010 we often conducted larval surveys using random transects counting many within patches of common and whorled milkweed
This years drought has limited nectar sources but any butterflyweed or asters attract migrants to take a break and nectar
We are attempting to plant out POUNDS of common milkweed during good harvests, we have at least 8 milkweed species we are trying to protect from deer herbivory and propagate more with focus on blunt-leaves, whorled, common, poke; all are most common, but other rarer species also
