Location: Yahara Heights/Cherokee Marsh Nat. RA West Trailhead
Dane County

The edges of the corn field abutting the property had been sprayed with herbicide and pesticide, killing most of the partridge peas in that area. The butterfly numbers and species were severely reduced in that area, which contained only 4 Cabbage Whites and 5 Chenucha virginica. There might have been spray drift into much of that area. Total Ctenucha = 15
