I live in Summit County, and I have not seen a Monarch butterfly for several years. Are they dying out?

There is a lot of discussion concering the population of Monarch; however, not seeing Monarchs at this time of year should not be a concern. Monarchs are most likely still in their pupating state and generally appear later in the summer.

Here is a website that will provide more information: http://monarchwatch.org/blog/
