  I haven't seen any monarchs this summer either. I have also noted complete absence of deer 
  flies (usually a major pest to my dog when going for a walk) which I read was due to the 
  heavy downpours we've been having in NE this spring and summer. Maybe the mornachs 
  were affected the same way?
