Each sponsoring business will Monarchs: beautiful but poisonous By Kerma Crouse You may have noticed the annual migration of the monarch butterfly is in progress• These amazing butterflies make a 3,000 mile migratory trip from Canada to Mexico (or southern Cali- fornia) each year in the late summer and early fall. This trip is much farther than the journey of any other butterfly. But also interesting is the fact these beautiful insects are poisonous. This brightly marked butterfly is avoided by preda- tors because of their vile taste. The taste is partly because of the cardenolides which are present in the body and wings of the butterfly. The butterflies acquire those substances when they are caterpillars. The female monarchs lay their eggs on the leaves of the poisonous milk- weed plant. The eggs hatch into cater- pillars. Milkweed leaves are the only food the newly hatched caterpillars eat. The poisonous cardenolides which are ingested by the caterpillars remain with them even as they undergo meta- morphosis. It is during their metamor- phosis in the chrysalis when they be- come the monarch butterflies we enjoy in our flower gardens. Beautiful, but poisonous. ii!i Last Wednesday, Gage Bauer, Jaclyn Yelken and Mattie Volker, members of the Rock Hills FFA Chapter, helped the Mankato Garden Club plant mums in the downtown flower containers.
