In the entire world, no butterflies migrate like the monarchs of North America. They travel much farther than all other tropical butterflies, up to 3,000 miles. It takes four generations of monarchs to complete the entire migration cycle. But residential areas planted with butterfly-attracting plants such as milkweed, asters, yarrow, goldenrod, sedum, and others will bring them to your home during their trip south.
The butterflies have crossed into the US and are now being reported across southeast Texas. Where are the monarchs in the Western Population now? Everyone is watching!
