Do the monarch from Long Island New York fly to Florida or Mexico? DJ
I think that most of the monarchs on the East Coast migrate to Mexico - check out this monarch migration map. I did find this about monarchs in Florida on a forum, though...
"There is a year round population in Florida. What I've read is that it takes a nose drive in the summer months when predators are at their peak and disease, too. Florida has a very high rate of OE. In the fall the population is refreshed with East Coast migrants that take a detour down thru Florida. The temps are so warm that they may integrate with the year round population."
