NYTimes on Monarch Migration Issues

http://www.nytimes.com/2014/11/18/science/monarchs-may-be-loved-to-death.html?action=click&contentCollection=The%20Upshot&module=MostEmailed&version=Full&region=Marginalia&src=me&pgtype=article

This article covers everything from increasing OE parasite in Eastern Monarch populations to concerns about tropical (non-native) Milkweeds being planted. I wonder if anyone has encountered butterflies in their garden coming out late (now) on an introduced Milkweed species as opposed to common? (Evan I am looking at you).

The big question, how many Monarchs made it to Mexico, seems to be up in the air… literally!!! The butterflies are flying through Texas, or so I hope. Good luck guys. I hope you can bring a little Wild Peace down that way.
