  Butterflies and other pollinators are incredibly important to the health of our world.  Without them, food crops would fail to produce and we would face serious shortages worldwide.  However, there are some simple ways to help prevent further decline in pollinator numbers.  One of the easiest – and most fun – is by creating a butterfly garden.

When it comes to attracting butterflies to our backyards, many people focus on planting the biggest and brightest flowers they can find.  These flowers have lots of nectar for adult butterflies, but it's also important to plant species for other development stages.  For example, by doing a little research, you can discover which plants caterpillars feed on in order to later grow into a butterfly.

Many caterpillars overwinter as pupae (the stage just before becoming adult butterflies).  To help them survive the cold temperatures, you can allow fallen leaves to remain on the ground and also keep dead flower stems and other sticks where they are.  These can insulate developing pupae from cold winter winds.

While making your yard more butterfly friendly means some extra work and a little more mess, it's all worth it in the end.  Especially if it means helping more butterflies stick around and pollinate our gardens for generations to come.
