In a new article from the Associated Press, Weather Underground reports that 25% fewer states have had a freeze so far this fall than in normal years. A shorter freeze season means longer allergy season, longer mosquito and tick season, longer agricultural pest season, and cascading effects on plant and animal interactions.
This fall, you can help monarchs and other pollinators by documenting fall flowering of milkweeds and other important nectar species! Join the Nectar Connectors campaign, and collect data that will help the US Fish and Wildlife Service and other managers know where and when nectar is available for pollinators such as monarchs as they make their way south this autumn.
