Mobile & Desktop Devices No Milkweed, No Monarchs

The iconic monarch butterfly relies on milkweed. It's the only plant upon which females will lay their tiny, pale eggs, and freshly hatched caterpillars feed exclusively on its foliage. But monarchs aren't alone—more than 40 insects and other invertebrates eat milkweed. Butterflies, moths and bees feed on its nectar, too.
