This is a mixed bag of reports.
I am just an emergency physician but I travel a bit in the midwest and i see fields planted edge to edge with soybeans and corn–would that reduce the milkweed population that is important to the Monarch life cycle?
I guess so. Hank de Carbano is the JS Monarch expert–and I expect he will evaluate this report and comment.
I will put his comment up as a post so you won’t miss the latest.
Every fall the Monarch migration to Mexico comes through my area of Texas and it is a reminder of the wonders of nature.
