Just wished to share this.

Monarch butterflies may end their yearly migration From The United States Midwest to Mexico
February 7, 2015 Update: Study links Monsanto herbicide to monarch decline
Associated Press Report | MEXICO CITY — A marvel of nature, millions of Monarch butterflies fly en mass from the US Midwest southward to Mexico to winter in warmer climates. The slow decline began after the NAFTA trade agreement was signed Jan 1, 1994.
A number of contributory factors include:
1. The genetically modified herbicide-resistant corn and soybean crops and herbicides in the USA leads to the wholesale killing of the monarch's principal food plant, common milkweed.
2. Urban sprawl in the United States
3. Extreme weather trends in the United States, Mexico and Canada, such as, severe cold snaps, unusually heavy rains or droughts in all three countries.
4. Dramatic reduction of the butterflies' habitat in Mexico due to illegal logging of the trees that they depend on for shelter.
5. Massive drop in reproductive habitat in Mexico due to changes in agricultural practices, especially the explosive growth in the use of herbicide-tolerant crops.
Nancy Herrick's book on the proving effects of rat's blood, elephant's milk, lion's milk, wolf's milk, dolphin's milk, dinosaur's bone, butterfly (Limenitis bredowii) and horse's milk. A pioneer in the field of provings, Nancy offers a significant contribution to the ever expanding materia medica knowledge.
Some butterflies also migrate along the West Coast USA
What can you do?
If you live in an area of the country where it does not get too cold over the winters and the butterflies may find a home, plant milkweed to replace some of the lost habitat.
Speak to your state representatives and call the Parks and Recreation supervisors in your region. Request a change in mowing schedules in parks and public spaces, to avoid cutting down milkweed during breeding seasons.
The migration of thousands of butterflies is an annual trek that scientists do not fully understand. Hypothetically, these insects mark the journey with pheromones, so that these delicate creatures find their way up and down the migratory path. If not enough butterflies are left to leave the scent, then the trail may not be strong enough for the butterflies to find their way home and continue the life-cycle.
The Story Of Butterfly Migration
Wouldn't this be a tremendous loss to the natural world if due to human indiscretion we eliminated the habitat, the food supplies and the ability of these incredibly beautiful butterflies to migrate.
We must also consider that as a fabric of nature, they have a relation to many other plants and animals in the wild. How this will change the survival of so many others may not be known until it is too late.
The well-known French paediatrician Patricia Le Roux ventures in this book into the virtually unknown territory of butterfly remedies in homeopathy. She has found these remedies particularly useful among hyperactive (ADHD) children who are lively, agitated, restless and mercurial.
In these “butterfly children,” there is often a strong feeling of being abandoned, especially by their father or mother, which is experienced as loss of imposed authority and safe boundaries.
Butterfly remedies also have a common theme of metamorphosis – the desire to dress up. They enjoy masks and are confused about their own identity. The author has found these remedies very effective too in various skin problems, such as urticaria or eczema.
The book contains provings, cases and concise essences of 13 butterfly and moth remedies: The California Sister, The Tailed Jay, The Lilac Beauty, The Processional Caterpillar, The Brown Tail Moth, The Brimstone, The Death’s Head Hawkmoth, The Blue Morpho, The European Peacock, The Marsh Fritillary, The Cabbage White, The Small Tortoiseshell and The Fox Moth.
These different remedies are clearly differentiated and vividly described, paving the way for exciting new prescription possibilities.
