Fruit for Butterflies  Habitat loss, climate change and pesticide use have decreased butterfly populations. Many butterflies do not live on nectar alone, some species prefer, even require, overripe fruit to feed on. Decaying fruits have carbohydrates and minerals, neccessary to most butterflies. Supply them with flowers, fruit, water and plants for their caterpillar stage, and you will have a large and happy, diverse population.
