BUTTERFLY HABITAT

   

         Many butterfly feeding and breeding grounds have been

 

 destroyed because  of pesticides and the construction of housing

 

and centers. So creating a butterfly garden will not only  attract these

 

beautiful winged creature                                                                  to your yard, but

 

can help them flourish                                                                    again. 

 

        Butterflies are easy                                                                 to attract; you just

 

have to know what they                                                                   like to

 

 eat. Caterpillars eat                                                                        “larval” plants like

 

milkweed,  marigolds,                                                                      queens

 

anne’s lace, and violets. Butterflies like nectar” plants ,like butterfly bush,

 

The beauty bush sunflowers, lilacs, snapdragons, and zinnias. Select plants

 

that are diverse in color and bloom at different times, so you will attract

 

butterflies all summer long. Check with a nursery to see what plants will

 

grow we;; in your area, and understand that different plants attract  different

 

butterflies and caterpillars.

 

      Be sure the area receives five to six hours of sun a day and is sheltered

 

from the wind. Also, a mud puddle in a sunny spot will provide butterflies

 

with other essential salts and nutrients.

 

Watching these flying flowers flit around your garden is delightful. And the

 

 satisfaction of  preserving a species by providing a safe habitat is

 

 immeasurable.
