Raising Monarch Butterflies at Pond Mountain Inn Vermont

Leave a comment

 

Two of our guests, both retired teachers, urged us to create a milkweed habitat for Monarchs. Patti recently sent us a butterfly enclosure so that we could raise Monarchs. Kay sprang into action and collected nine caterpillars, and we’ve released our first today!

Here’s what happens… The Monarch butterfly life cycle has four stages and four generations – the stages are egg, larvae, pupa and adult butterfly; the four generations refer to four generations of butterflies passing through these four stages within a year.
The first three generations live from two to six weeks – the fourth generation eggs are laid in the month of September or October and live more than eight to nine months. This fourth generation butterfly also has a specialty; it migrates to the warmer regions of California or Mexico!
