There is more to the decline of monarch butterflies in
America than has been claimed (letter, June 24).
Volatile weather conditions and illeal loin in the
Me!ican woodland used as the butterflies" o#erwinterin

There is, thouh, an obliation for farmers to im$ro#e
how the% utilise new technolo%, includin $lantin
refue stri$s, to reduce the ris& of unintended
conse'uences.
