View 4/4/2024 New Braunfels TX Monarchs Butterfly Weed2 entire plants have been stripped of leaves.....I am seeing more young larvae present today. I have observed them for 3 days now. It seems like these larvae are located on plants on one side of my garden where I always have tropical milkweed planted. I added in some other plants on another side of the garden. I do not see any evidence of eggs or larvae there. It seems like the butterflies instinctively knew where to lay eggs on their journey north.
