|Event||Monarch (OTHER observations)|
|Date of Sighting||03/23/06|
Well it is noon here in Monticello. Ms. Monarch has only laid one egg since yesterday. I am beginning to wonder if the colder temperatures might have slowed down the egg laying.
When she was laying the larger number of eggs, the outside temperatures were in the 80's, and while my office temperatures were not that high, they were in the upper 70's.
Ms. Monarch is
on a table next to a large window on the north side of the building, and while
it is not as cold inside
I know it takes a certain temperature for monarchs to be active and fly, I don't know what temperatures are necessary for egg production. Maybe I will move her to a warmer place and see what happens.
