Monarch Cats On The Move
|Young one week old Monarch caterpillars|
In case you weren't aware, the migrating Monarchs are in grave danger of becoming an extinct event. The numbers are incredibly low this year. In fact, less than half of last years numbers and down 75% or more than just 4 years ago. Much of this it is generally accepted due to Monsanto's generically modified "roundup" ready crops and the over spraying of herbicides killing thousands of acres of milkweed, the only plant that the Monarch caterpillars eat.

If you are interested in getting your own caterpillar, you must have access to milkweed to feed it. They require fresh leaves every day. Call us for more info.
