As I noted in an earlier blog, this has been a great year for Monarch Caterpillars. At the end of August I was tracking six caterpillars at several locations in my prairie. On September first they all disappeared. I tried finding them in the surrounding weeds but didn’t have any luck. Within the next several weeks there should be a large number of Monarch Butterflies turning up in the Prairie.

    • The only thing I’ve seen them eat is milkweed. I have plenty of grape vines but have never seen them on one.
