I don't know; for years I've mowed some areas with milkweed in the first week of July, and found that they young sprouts that come up afterwards got all the eggs.

  I would have suggested May at some point. For now I would say after first frost. If they are there now, it is a good bet they are laying eggs.

          When can I safely mow a meadow filled with milkweed and circling monarchs?
