Second Week Monitoring

As a blogger this week, it was quite an experience to see the interesting things that were on the milkweeds with my team. I saw a monarch egg on the edge of a milkweed leaf being surrounded by some Lacewing eggs around it. Last week, many people misidentified some things as “monarch eggs”. After looking through the microscope from last week, I was able to identify a monarch egg. Also, one plant was infested with Aphids that almost stopped us from even getting near the plant. I don’t remember us getting that plant down in the sheets but we did it. This week was very tiring and hot but let’s hope next week goes faster and cooler.
