Decreased MI butterfly population this summer

KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- Michigan might see fewer butterflies this summer. Ashley Anne Wick, with the Kalamazoo Nature Center and head of the Michigan Butterfly Network, says the population is decreasing partly because of last year's droughts, as they prevented many butterfly eggs from hatching.

Wick says other reasons inlcude increased pesticide use and a loss of habitat for the butterflies. She tells us the Butterfly Network will continue to monitor the population in Michigan.
