Butterflies not only add to the beauty of our garden but they also help with pollinating flowers.

  2. Hello…
    I’m interested in the Butterfly feeder with the multi-colored sponges. What I don’t see is what is in the feeder. Is it water? sugar water?
    I would appreciate your help.
    Thank you,

    Love the butterfly feeder with coloured sponges but how do you keep ants and wasps away, the also like sugar water?

    • Hani Shabbir says:

      For keeping ants away you can try hanging it somewhere, and wasps I think will come if there is too much of sugar water in a sponge. Try using an appropriate amount! I hope this helps.

    What a great idea. I am doing this first thing in Spring. I feel badly that I never thought of this myself.I have so many butterflies in my yard, I just assumed they went to one of my many birdbaths to drink.Well now they will have their own little “watering holes”. Thanks so much for sharing!!
