Monarch Population Increases

monarch-popoulation-up-2019According to Monarch Watch, the Monarch population has the largest population in twelve years. The population more than doubled going from 2.48 hectares to 6.05 hectares.

It will be interesting to hear what the experts say about this large increase. In St. Louis Missouri we had a great year last year for Monarchs.

In the mean time, keep planting milkweed and plenty of nectar plants to keep the trend going.
