How to Attract Butterflies to Your Pond in Northern Michigan
Everybody loves butterflies. From the most famous monarch butterflies to less known but still beautiful species like peacock butterflies and Saturn butterflies, the way they float through the summer air makes any pond just a little bit brighter. While butterflies will already love your yard because you have a Waterpaw pond for them to drink from, here are a few ways to attract even more of these incredible creatures. Butterflies love a sunny area with protection from the wind. Having tall, strong plants beside your pond can create this area for them. Butterflies also like flowers that are red, yellow, orange, pink and purple, with a flat top for them to land on. Lastly, try to avoid using insecticides, as most of them are lethal to both caterpillars and butterflies. With these foolproof tips, your pond will quickly become a butterfly oasis.
