View 7/4/2020 SASSER GA Monarchs A. tuberosa, A. incarnata, A. perennisThis is the first year I've had any caterpillars on my A. perennis. Most cats are on A. tuberosa. I've cut back flowers and hit them with fertilizer, so tender leaves are emerging. I also had 7 caterpillars in April, but failed to do a report. It is possible that there are more than 12 out there. I have lots of milkweed and may have missed a cat. Lastly, most of my milkweed plants are in pots. I worry that the caterpillars may not make it to a safe place to pupate. I love my orange flowered butterfly weed even though I have read that the leaves are leathery and that other milkweeds are better. My Swamp milkweed has NEVER bloomed in six years. The aquatic milkweed is doing great in a regular garden and blooms every year.

View 6/23/2020 Put-in-Bay OH Monarchs A. syriacaI checked 2 sites on South Bass island on 6-17-20. I found some milkweed along the roadside while driving to the fish hatchery, on the bridge near the eagle nest site.  I checked 8 common milkweed there and found zero evidence of activity. We then went to the ice ramp, to check a large patch on the water's edge and enjoy the sunset.  I checked 27 common milkweed plants, no activity-- no chew holes or frass at ice ramp from 8:30pm to 9pm, 70F, calm winds. I have photos, but I don't know how to add them to this report.
