Ann Cantrell is working to Tell The U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service to Protect Monarchs

Ann Cantrell

Ten years ago I took out the grass in my yard and planted natives, including milkweed. For 8 years, Monarchs came to my yard and laid eggs. The grandchildren and I collected a number of caterpillars, fed them, watched them make their chrysalises and then released the adults. This year, although the milkweed is healthy, there have not been any Monarchs to feed on them. I also do not have ladybugs or bees in my yard any more. I never use pesticides or herbicides, but my neighbors do and so does the city at the local parks. The gutters are also sprayed all summer to kill mosquitoes. What are we doing to our world?
