|Planting milkweed, as well as a season-long supply of nectar sources, |
helps Monarchs reproduce and survive throughout the year.
- Stop using pesticides on lawns.
- Plant milkweed, the Monarch's host plant. Monarch butterflies will only lay their eggs on milkweed, which is often removed from yards and building sites.
- Plant native nectar sources, such as coneflower and black-eyed Susan.
- If you live in VA, show your support for pollinators by ordering one of the new pollinator license plates.
- Raise Monarchs with your school or family this spring. Refer to Monarch Watch to learn how.
One small effort makes a world of difference. Try it.
