If You Miss Seeing Butterflies In Your Yard, There's Something You Can Do About It
Monarch butterflies will only lay their eggs on milkweed. You'll want to plant a local, native variety and research the best place in your town to get it in order to avoid plants grown with a neonicotinoid pesticide, which are harmful for bees. (Fun fact: Lowe's has resolved to phase out neonicotinoids by 2019.) There are also many types of milkweed, and only certain ones will attract monarchs. Read more about it here.Bees are very fond of milkweed as well.
