Happenings in the insect world

My milkweed plants are now tall and straight. I check them every day with the hope of spotting monarch eggs. I plan on placing fine nets over the plant as soon as eggs appear. This is my first year trying to save these precious monarchs. I wrote a children’s book after I found a wounded monarch in the grass with a broken wing. I took this monarch to the U of Wisconsin Entomology Department and a new wing was attached and the butterfly survived and flew away. I hope to get pictures this year to go along with the book and then have it published.

Can you tell if milkweed was sprayed by farmers. Can anything be done to stop spraying or cutting down milkweed?
