Here's a quick video detailing the Monarch Butterfly's life-cycle, enjoy!
Once an egg is laid, it should take 3-5 days to hatch.
Over the next two weeks (11-18 days) the caterpillars grow in size eating milkweed leaves. Monarch caterpillars can eat almost 200 times their body weight in this time!
During this time they metamorphose into the adult orange and black butterfly!
It's been a great year for Monarchs and Pollinators in general read more here, or contact us about installing pollinator friendly plants for you!
