No Tiger Swallowtail Butterflies

Asked July 11, 2016, 10:02 AM EDT

My house is located next to the Gunpowder State Park. For many years, by this time of the season, I would have seen numerous Tiger Swallowtail butterflies. This is the first summer that I have not witnessed a single specimen. Is there any reason for this anomaly? Thank you,

Baltimore County Maryland

Due to our cold winter and cool wet spring many plants as well as insects are late this year about several weeks. Keep looking. They usually show up later in July.
