13 Monarch Predators- Save More Monarch Butterflies
Many believe that monarchs are safe from predators outdoors because of the milkweed toxins they ingest. Sadly, many wildlife species have adapted to these toxins and regularly feed on monarch eggs, caterpillars, chrysalides, and butterflies. Here's a growing list of monarch predators you'll find in the butterfly garden and how to stop them, at least, to some extent...
I've been nurturing and releasing these beautiful creatures just under 3 years now, and they never cease to amaze me. Check out how they spaced themselves just so around this pot. Never seen them do that before. Where there was a gap between two, a caterpillar crawled in between and chrysalised. They need enough space in between, so as not to disturb each other once they emerge as butterflies. I love them! ♥ :-D
