Butterfly Puddler

How to Create a DIY Butterfly Puddler

Help butterflies, especially during dry weather, with a DIY backyard butterfly puddler spot.

  1. Find and fill a shallow dish or container with soil or sand. Add a few flat rocks to provide perching spots.

  2. Pour enough water in the container to moisten the soil, and sprinkle some salt on the surface. Also set out overripe fruit like bananas and oranges.

  3. Keep the soil moist during the heat of the day, when butterflies are more likely to visit.
