Hello Negin, Thanks for your support for the RCBT!
Gloria Johnson

Gloria from Georgia. How do you protect the eggs from the orange aphids that always find my milkweed?
Negin Almassi (she/her)
01:09:58
Hello Ricardo, nice to “see” you! My pleasure.

I had a caterpillar pupate October 31, 2020. She eclosed November 16, 2020 and finally took flight the next day. I was thrilled to see her, but I am not optimistic about her survival.
Negin Almassi (she/her)
01:13:14
Just to make sure I understand, are the southbound migratory adults of fall 2021 the great grandchildren of the southbound migratory adults of fall 2020? Or it is more often the grandchildren? Do we know what influences the variation in number of intervening generations?
John Lang
01:13:35
Great presentation. What are some of the “rare” host plants you mentioned serve as hosts for monarchs?
stevi
01:14:08
Thank you for making this great point about the milkweed ecosystem and the importance of all its insects, Kathleen!
Debbie Clement

I am 'new-ish' to the Monarch cycle and am working diligently to educate myself as a citizen scientist. MW & native nectar plants: I understand completely. In the various Monarch/pollinator groups on FB..... I am seeing opinions at complete opposition to each other regarding whether it is helpful to bring the eggs into enclosures. Some are outspoken that this could be harmful to the fittest of the species. Others are adamant that every butterfly 'saved' is helpful. What is your experience/insight? Should we be encouraging classroom teachers to have enclosures?
Meredith Marchbank
01:16:09
Is it good to plant common milkweed in Georgia? I thought it was native to the midwest, not Georgia. I have heard it can affect the native milkweed population. Thank you!
Karen Smith
01:16:28
Here, northeast of Atlanta, GA, several of us had monarchs lay eggs in March. Our weather was still quite cool so the eggs took longer to hatch and the caterpillars have been slow to develop as well. How much does temperature effect the biology of their development?
Susan Meyers
01:17:13
We are asking people not to plant Common Milkweed in GA. Refer to https://www.eealliance.org/uploads/1/2/9/7/129730705/milkweedinformation.pdf
Karen Smith
01:18:39
Thanks, Jaape!!
Virginia Dolder
01:18:55
I have found a lot of swamp milkweed leaf beetles. I worry that they are eating too much and not leaving enough for the monarchs. Gainesville, FL
stevi
01:19:59
Our first eggs of the season that were laid last week took 8-10 days to hatch due to a cold snap.
Mary Cary
01:26:04
PLEASE tell everyone NOT to plant tropical milkweed!!
Virginia Dolder
01:27:09
Finding native milkweed has been a real challenge here in Gainesville, FL.
Kitty Spivey
01:27:53
Georgia also has a state butterfly...Eastern Tiger Swallowtail
Dennis Krusac
01:38:06
How important are mosquito spraying and neonicitinoid pesticides as factors that are reducing populations of monarch and other beneficial insect species?
stevi
01:40:07
Can you comment on the California Fish and Wildlife service recently releasing a statement that forbids handling monarchs in any stage? It's been difficult to find further information, and has caused confusion among folks that raise them responsibly. Both sides of this argument make valid points. Thanks!
Sue Davis
01:42:40
Solar farms - there are some programs to plant pollinator habitat at solar farms too!
Kitty Spivey
01:43:12
Has any research been done on the mortality of butterflies moving across highways/roads with wildflower plantings? Is that a concern?
Noah Keener
01:44:15
I want to create a monarch habitat at my school in western NC. How do you recommend I go about this from scratch?
Trecia Neal
01:45:49
Thanks Jaap and Karen. Great presentation as always! Hope you and families are all well.
Sue Davis
01:45:53
How do lawn chemicals impact Monarchs/butterflies?
Linda Musgrove
01:48:21
Thank you!
stevi
01:49:09
I would also love to hear your thoughts on tropical milkweed use.
Jaap de Roode (he/him)
01:49:29
I will discuss tropical milkweed in my talk.
Sue Davis
01:50:00
Wondering about herbicides. I know they impact bees.
Meredith Marchbank
01:50:02
I find creating habitat and managing Invasives to be a huge challenge. Are there examples of how to do this more efficiently and successfully?
Dennis Krusac
01:51:56
You mentioned the importance of legislation. Can anything be done to stop pest control companies from advertising that their mosquito sprays are "eco-friendly"?
Norris Wootton
02:02:56
I move caterpillars to better leaves all the time All my caterpillrss are outside .
Rob Wood
02:05:37
I've been dealing with the California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) every day on these issues. Important to understand that it's not illegal to touch or rear monarchs in California - it's illegal without a permit.
stevi
02:33:43
will this presentation be available online to watch (please)?
stevi
02:35:59
Are you saying that Queens and Soldiers are not susceptible to OE? (not sure if I heard correctly, but always understood all three could be infected.)
stevi
02:37:05
Thank you for clarifying!
Debbie Clement
02:37:52
Thank you to both presenters for your insight, experience and passion.
Trisha Willis

with Invasives - never give up

I hand cut 1000 feet of roadside from Kudzu that climbed tree tops even - cut for years til all gone

This is a great web page that shows Native Milkweeds & Nectar Plants for most of North America. https://www.monarchmilkweedhabitat.com/NY
Joyce Hutchins
02:42:53
From Joyce Hutchins Thank you very much.
Kathleen Casses
02:43:04
all natives came back on their own
stevi
02:43:08
I carefully raise monarchs to submit information for citizen science (with most time spent creating more habitat), and have always understood using a specific diluted bleach solution to disinfect milkweed leaves, eggs, enclosures, and tools to be best practice. When OE finally showed up after several seasons, doing this was the game changer to get back to having healthy, OE free monarchs to release. Do you have thoughts on this, and specifically releasing OE free butterflies? This has been great-- thank you!
Pamela Mable
02:43:42
Will slides and other information in the chat be made available?
Dennis Krusac

people can also check out the Georgia Pollinator Partnership website: gapp.org

Thank you Jaap.
Jaap de Roode (he/him)
02:46:33
Cutting down curassavica can be used as an alternative to natural mortality of natives. Natives are still better though :-)
Norris Wootton
02:46:34
Thank you so very much for this presentation.
Sue Davis
02:46:37
