1. Feeding Butterflies with Nectar

Belightful Butterfly Nectar - Instructions of use:

  1. Mix nectar powder with 150 ml/5 fl oz of water
  2. Apply ready liquid into the butterfly feeder. You can speed up the absorption by using warm water.

Once the food is mixed with water, keep it refrigerated and use within 3 days. 

Refill with nectar as often as needed. During a very hot and sunny period, you might need to do this more frequently due to evaporation.

2. Cleaning and maintenance

Hand wash your feeder with warm water once a week. You can add drops of vinegar to enhance the cleaning effect. Rinse thoroughly. Refill nectar once a week or more often, if needed. Evaporation depends on weather conditions (sunshine, air humidity).
