  • Something else to remember is that the organic product must remain damp.

  • Tiger Swallowtail Butterflies pulled in to a mud puddle

  • "Puddling" 

  • Many Butterflies Love Mud Puddles 

  • Butterflies, particularly the guys, are pulled in to wet mud where they will frequently gather to discover minerals and salts that as far as anyone knows increment their fruitfulness (this is called "puddling"). I have not attempted mud puddles yet but rather it is on my rundown of things to attempt! I frequently have seen butterflies examining around on clammy ground and I'm certain they would welcome it on the off chance that I would make one so they make them amid the many droughts of summer! 

  • From my examination, making a butterfly mud puddle truly just sums to filling a water tight saucer or compartment with sand, shakes and water.

I additionally read that the bigger the breadth of the puddle, the more probable it is to pull in butterflies in substantial gatherings. Ahhhh, something new, fun, and simple to attempt!

On the off chance that you see a butterfly simply "resting" with its wings open toward the sun, it is in all likelihood lolling in the glow. I have perused about putting luxuriating stones in your garden for the butterflies yet I need to state that I would say, this is really low on garden things that pull in butterflies to my garden.
