Raising Monarchs

There are many ways to successfully raise Monarchs, so I thought I’d collect the different ideas on this page.

Chrysalises don’t need to hang. This is something I learned from Mona Miller. The video below shows how you can put the chrysalises on their sides in a mesh bag and they will successfully emerge and climb up the side. Mesh laundry bags are great for this task. I’d put paper towels on the bottom.

Note – Mona has a great Facebook group called, Raising Butterflies and Moths for Conservation. It’s a great resource.
