150 Monarch Eggs and Counting!!
It's either feast or famine! The strong southerly winds have blown the Monarchs up farther than normal. The females are in a panic to get the eggs laid. I found 13 eggs on one little leaf today. My friend talked to Jim Lovett at Monarch Watch, and this seems to be happening quite a bit. They are seeing it in Kansas. Problem is, very little milkweed is up.
I am rolling the eggs off the leaves as I don't want to discourage the females from laying their eggs. I'm just hoping I can find food for all of them. And, I've also been looking for "placements; ie, adoptions!" But very few takers due to the food supply.
I've got some milkweeds on order and am hoping they arrive soon. I just didn't get started soon enough this year. I just hope we can get this first generation fed and raised to maturity. And then they can head your way and lay eggs in all of your yards!
