Butterfly feeders are easy to make, look wonderful in your garden and help wildlife! So if you are like me love seeing tons of butterflies in your garden, making a butterfly feeder will help you to attract more butterflies
Like humans, fresh water is essential for butterflies so don’t forget to offer this as well as nectar/syrup. Since butterflies taste with their feet it is most important to have them come in contact with the feeding solution so that they can taste it and that will cause them to uncurl their proboscis and begin to feed.
Many sites suggest making a sugar syrup but in cold dry weather sugar water can form crystals inside the butterfly. A better form of artificial nectar is a heaped teaspoon of honey dissolved in half a glass of water, with a drop of soy sauce added to give added minerals.
