|Nice to see this reminder! Peak Monarch fall season is approaching in Texas, yet I'm not seeing any Monarchs. The article has a few errors, however. Most Monarchs that move through Texas in fall will not reproduce until they leave their wintering territory in Mexico early in spring the next year. Others may stop and lay eggs in Texas for a new generation which will head to Mexico if they survive. That's the way I understand it, anyway. In any case, they need milkweeds and nectar from other flowering plants.
