    I have a problem with red milkweed beetles. They eat the milkweed leaves and I'm constantly debugging my plants. They are attacking the leaves, eating furiously leaving minimal leaves for butterfly egg laying!

Monarch caterpillar populations are declining rapidly, and milkweed is critical to monarch survival as their caterpillars feed exclusively upon milkweed leaves. Milkweed also attracts many species of butterflies, bees, and other insects, making it a true gem to pollinators. Habitat tip: plant milkweed in large clumps to maximize its benefit to wildlife. Find out which native milkweed to plant by visiting YardMap: bit.ly/1q0qEHA. Note: butterflies in photo are a fritillary and skippers.
