This summer I noticed some Monarch caterpillars on my showy Milkweed here in Colorado. This book helped me to raise a few butterflies and release them into the wild. Having the cage outside made it easy for the released Monarchs to orient themselves quickly and take off southwards. It has been a fascinating experience, the book covers everything you could encounter and wonder about.
Everything worked fine. The book was informational.
BRING HOME THE BUTTERFLIES book is my go-to text for everything I need to know about raising Monarchs! It 's a must-have and I refer to it frequently. I've made 2 orders and each arrived in 2 days. Customer service is excellent. I highly recommend Monarch Butterfly Life as a source for products and information.
I raised my second small batch of butterflies carefully following the instructions in this book. I was very grateful to have it. I came to raising monarchs by accident. A neighbor gave me a pot of swamp milkweed and I set it on my sunny back step because I didn't have a great place to plant it yet. One day I noticed three good-sized caterpillars on the plant and since there was a thunderstorm approaching I put the pot on my front porch. I had many neighbors with milkweed (in Duluth, MN) and after the caterpillars ate the swamp milkweed down to stems I started raiding (with permission) milkweed from neighbors. I more or less fumbled through the first batch but did watch them fly away. Right before that time, my very helpful book and equipment had arrived so I learned to let the butterflies have plenty of time to get their wings in condition before releasing them (one caterpillar had crawled across the floor, up the wall, and made its chrysalis on the corner of the ceiling). The guidance in the book with the new equipment made the second batch a lot easier to raise and I said adios to butterflies #6 and #7 (a female) this morning. I had one catastrophe--a caterpillar was making its chrysalis on a leaf about 4" from the floor. When I checked on it I was saddened to see that it had slipped off the leaf and ruptured. After that, I put a soft towel below each "J" just in case. You mentioned towels under chrysalises hanging from your cupboards so I decided to play it safe in the cage. Why is the book Volume II? Is there are Volume I out there?
