    I believe its a week or two.

    Lifespan:3-4 weeks in summer generations; 7-8 months in over-wintered generations

    They have a special home when they winter in Mexico for North America-they live months, reproduce if they live and fly home to winter-where they can live half a year. But most die before reproducing. Eaten by birds, misjudge the distance to the next water hole…. Some are mounted and will live forever-almost.

    i think it last 10 days but if you touch their wings you are removing oils that help them live longer so they will die sooner
