Would you like a good omen of butterflies scurrying around your gardens? Try this fun tip. It works. Bring the concoction in at night time so you do not encourage the raccoon or other critters to snoop around. Put overripe bananas, orange's, papaya's or mango's on a raised platform above the flower bed. Poke holes in the fruit so the butterflies can get to the tasty treat and nectar. Add a few drops of Gatorade to each piece of fruit. Bees will like to come around as well,. The butterflies swarm to your gardens. It is a beautiful sight. If the busy bee bothers you make the platform a bit higher

      I just must try your fruit tip to call the butterflies. This week the monarchs are coming through here on their way to Mexico, so I was at the park trying to get pictures of them on some beautiful purple butterfly bushes - got them, then accidently deleted them before I got them transferred to my computer. Did you hear me holler? :-) Thanks for many good tips in your hub!
