By making your garden friendly to butterflies, you can help reduce declining butterfly populations.
Gardens provide essential food and homes for butterflies and moths all over the UK and provide an essential source of food through flowers and plants.
As well as planting nectar-producing flowers, letting an area of your garden grow wild and allowing the grasses to grow tall could attract a range of regular visitors to your garden, including meadow brown, speckled wood, gatekeeper, small skipper, marbled white and ringlet.
Butterflies do not have any lips or teeth, just a long coiled tongue.
Most butterflies only lay their eggs on a few selective host plants, with each species having a preference for different plant types.
Butterflies can select suitable plants by a combination of sight, smell and taste, with the butterfly identifying chemicals from the plant which signals it being a suitable host species for food.
When an adult butterfly emerges from a pupa, the butterfly pumps fluid into its wings to expand them which is followed by a hardening process to allow the butterfly to fly.
Butterflies in all stages of their life are preyed on by a wide variety of predators in the form of mammals, birds, spiders and other insects.
Adult butterflies use colour to attract mates, avoid predation, but also to raise body temperature by basking and warming up. This is particularly important in British butterflies.
A butterfly has thousands of lenses in it’s eyes.
