How Many Generations?
The monarch life cycle only takes about 30 days during the summer breeding season in the north. This means a new generation can be produced each month. Timing depends upon temperature. Monarchs develop more quickly when it's warm, and more slowly when it's cool. This summer, count how many generations they produce in your region.
