Want to attract more butterflies to your garden? You might want to try this – East Bay Times


If you have a sunny backyard and are thinking of a creative way to utilize the space, may I suggest a butterfly house?

I once visited a butterfly house in Israel that was several thousand square feet in size and consisted of a simple wood frame covered with mosquito netting. I am sure you could make a butterfly house frame out of PVC pipe as well, whether it was a square frame or arched.

To make your butterfly house into a preferred summer residence for lepidopteran creatures, make sure there is exposure to a sizable portion of the day’s sun (8-10 hours a day) and that a steady water source (such as a birdbath or circulating fountain) is provided. Lastly, a butterfly house must not be located in the pathway of strong winds.
