The Monarch Caterpillar


The monarch butterfly is highly recognizable and loved by many nature enthusiasts. However, it is in trouble and needs our help. Over the past 20 years, the number of monarchs has greatly decreased. You can help by planting milkweed along with a pollinator garden.


Monarchs require milkweed to survive. The female butterflies only lay their eggs on milkweed plants. The larvae, also known as the caterpillar, exclusively feed on the milkweed. Without it, they will die. Milkweed leaves also provide caterpillars with shelter.





How you can help the monarch:

  • Plant milkweed at your home or business.

  • Have a pollinator garden using local plants.

  • Avoid using pesticides. Pesticides kill the eggs, larvae and butterflies. Then birds and other animals consume the insects and in turn, they are poisoned.

  • Get involved in community monarch conservation projects

  • Try to work with your county, city and state authorities to save the milkweed. Milkweed grows naturally along many roadways and is often mowed down during peak season.

  • Educate others about monarch conservation efforts.

  • Contribute to conservation efforts
