Butterflies

If you're not the correct "expert" for this question, please let me know or forward it to the correct person. I would like to know how many eggs a Monarch butterfly typically lays on milkweed plants.

Wildlife Expert - Ken Burton

A female Monarch usually will lay one egg on each of about 400 milkweed plants.
