    Butterfly19, I don’t really understand your question. The tag should not affect its behaviour.

    What if your monarch butterbutterfly takes more than 2 days to fly away when you have tagged it?

    We only tag monarch butterflies as they overwinter as adults. Also they have two qualities which make tagging possible: They are 2 to 3 times bigger than other butterflies and they are easy to handle and also they are more commonly found in people’s gardens.

    Oh that’s three qualities!
