Milkweed was likely more advanced due to the later date, and favorable conditions are helping the monarchs on their way. Because the monarchs are now breeding and short-lived, habitat is very important to their reproductive success for future generations. The new generation typically ecloses during the first week of May and moves into the northern breeding grounds.
