Monark Butterfly Food

The poisonous Milkweed is the primary source of food for the Monarch Butterfly pupa, or Caterpillar (which is classified as a specialist herbivore). Asclepias are the only source of food until they are released from their cocoon (chrysalis) and transformed (Or metamorphosis) into a butterfly. After transformation of adults drink water and extract nectar from many kinds of flowers. Reyes did not pollinate the flowers, bees, but not the same jurisdiction.

The vast majority of all the Kings in North America have chosen to live in agricultural areas are abundant Plants whose leaves of milkweed provide a safe place to lay their eggs, and also to feed their young. Upon his return in the spring of their winter migration, butterflies stop the resurgence of plants and flowers of milkweed and continue north.

The milkweed plant family contains usually more than two thousand varieties. North America is home to more than 105 versions. The Monarchs lay their eggs in different varieties, but seem to prefer the native, rather than hybrids. Many kinds of milkweed in North America contain poisons and are toxic enough damage to livestock and other animals that have not learned through evolution to avoid them.

The milkweeds that contain bad taste bitter and ingredients Poison Heart (cardiac glycosides) are ingested by the larvae of the monarch, and remains in the adult butterfly. Birds and other predators, the monarchs of foods containing these toxic substances, can become very ill, perhaps fatally so. Kings themselves (And some other insects) have developed immunity to these poison juices. Interestingly, the viceroy butterfly, although not containing toxins, has been imitated in time much like the monarch, thus deterring many predators.

On the side of predators, two species of birds, oriole and black-backed Grosbeak Black Head unaffected by the toxins of the Monarch and the main opponent.

Variety milkweed are found abundantly, and although the U.S. government has described the plant as toxic or noxious, farmers consider the plant as a weed and a real nuisance for livestock in particular through agricultural areas in the Midwest, which affects their migratory behavior of the summer.

Scientists now able to determine the migration routes of the monarch butterfly. An adult can be analyzed to determine exactly which species of milkweed to feed your state earlier caterpillar. Milkweed varieties are often confined to a particular location, a monarch found in eastern West Virginia perhaps born in the southwest Georgia!
