Sighting for June 1, 2016

Salem City- area 1
Salem County, NJ

Area seems to have changed, as butterfly numbers are significantly/drastically down from comparable timeframe searches last year (10+ species, 40+ individuals). An extensive search this afternoon revealed no Bronze Coppers in this active site the past two years and exceptionally low activities for butterflies, dragonflies or even biting bugs. Unknown, but perhaps the area was sprayed earlier this spring. Will continue to visit and monitor.
