What do Monarch Butterflies Eat?
The Monarch Butterfly feeds on milkweed when it is
a caterpillar and nectar when it is an adult.
Like many butterflies, Monarch butterflies eat nectar
from flowers. Butterfly mouthparts are made for drinking
nectar. If you look at a monarch butterfly's head,
you will see its proboscis, a long "straw," curled
up below its mouth. When it lands on a flower, it
can unfurl the proboscis, stick it down into the flower,
and suck up the sweet fluid. If you're planting a
garden for monarch butterflies, try to provide a variety
of flowers that bloom throughout the months when monarchs
visit your area.
