Monarch Butterfly Life Cycle

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!



When grown they will form a chrysalis, where they will spend the next 8-14 days.

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!
