Butterfly Release

What to do when your butterflies emerge?
Before your butterfly emerges be sure to provide sticks that hit the bottom of the container so a fallen butterfly can climb up the sticks to find a place to hang. After emerging your butterfly will need to 'hang' for a few hours to dry it's wings. It is kindest to release the butterfly after 3-4 hours and a great joy to watch the creature you have raised fly off to freedom! Of course if your garden is planted with host and nectar plants the butterflies will stay!!
