Where the heck are the Monarch Butterfly's?

I haven't seen a single Monarch Butterfly this year.
The Butterfly weed and Milkweed usually have loads of caterpillars feeding on them by now.
Where the heck are the Monarch Butterfly's this year?


  1. Hi Netty, Now that you mention it, I haven't seen any caterpillars either and we have oodles of milkweed. That's too bad. I hope it may just be a temporary thing, due to our late spring.

    Your vegetable garden is looking great; I never even got mine planted this year. Too bad about the beetles, I don't know how they find their way to gardens, it must be radar or something.

    I loved your earlier posts with the gorgeous flowers, too!

  2. I've heard they never made it past Kansas because of the neonictinide pesticides. We haven't had one either.
