Monarchs and black chrysalis

14 years ago

For the last 2 summers I have had some turn black. I am not raising these. They are on the plants by my front porch and some of the chrsalises hang on my porch and front door. Some of the chrsalises turn black. Some are ok. From what I read, the plants start fresh after the winter. I was wondering if that was correct or should I destroy them and start with new plants. These are in large pots on each side of my steps. They die back completely in the winter.They are growing back now.
