Monarch Watch Monarch Tagging Kit

**We are SOLD OUT of tags for 2018. Thank you for all the support!!**

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 should begin tagging no earlier than 3 weeks before the peak migration in your area. 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". Please scroll down to the description for more important information

    • We ship to time the arrival of your tags with peak migration in your area. For example, if peak migration in your area is in October, we will ship your tags in late September.
    • Tagging kits ship via USPS First Class Mail without tracking numbers.
