Butterfly Feeding Kits
Butterfly feeding kits are often sold in tandem with butterfly
kits that allow you to "grow" butterflies. These kits often
include butterfly larvae or caterpillars, with all the essential
tools to help the butterfly in its transformation. Butterfly
feeding is just an added ingredient to this list of essentials.
Butterfly feeding really means supplying the butterfly you wish
to "grow" from a kit with the proper nutrition. Most butterflies
feed on nectar or a plant of some variety. Monarch butterflies can
be attracted to your yard if you plant milkweed in your garden.
Build It and They Will Come
If your goal is to attract butterflies to your garden, then it
really becomes necessary to plant the right trees or flowers.
Almost all butterfly species eat nectar, or the leaves of certain
plants. They also need water, as they "drink" the nectar from
flowers that mix with water.
If you are purchasing a butterfly feeding kit, then you will be
supplied with the correct food from the retailer or breeder. Most
often, these butterfly feeding kits contain a feeder that mounts
to a wall or can be hung, as well as non-fermenting artificial
nectar to attract and feed most species of butterflies. You just
have to add warm water to the mix, and wait for your butterflies
