Large populations of painted lady butterflies have been reported in a number of locations across the state. I call them miniature monarchs because of some similarities. The main concern about these populations is whether these adult butterflies will lay eggs and the subsequent larvae (thistle caterpillars) will be a problem in soybean fields. Typically, painted lady butterflies fly northward during the summer, so butterfly numbers should decrease over time.
