Monarch Watch Monarch Tagging Kit
Spotlight!

**We are now accepting PRE-ORDERS for 2019 tags.  Please keep in mind that while we BEGIN shipping tags in August, we time the shipping of your tags to arrive right before migration begins in your area.*

The optimal time to tag for the fall migration varies by climate, and we time the shipping of our tags to arrive right before migration begins in your area. Tagging too early can lead to unintentionally tagging summer generations of monarchs that will not migrate for overwintering.

You can determine peak migration in your area using the chart below. If you do not know your latitude, you can search your zip code on the internet to find it - ex. "66047 latitude".
