Butterfly and Moth Feeder

Butterfly and Moth Feeder
Code 14 WG-BMF

Manufactured from solid FSC certified timber, this product which is designed for butterflies and moths, combines both a feeder and habitat for roosting and hibernating.

The attractively shaped 'butterfly' main body features retractable feed trays on either side and a removable central hibernating cassette, allowing easy inspection. Each tray has a special ‘flower attractor’ utilising an easy-clean flexible plastic cup and a painted flower pattern which uses specialist ultra-violet attractor paint to attract butterflies.
The trays are suitable for either Wildlife World Butterfly Food mix or a nectar solution. It can also be filled with fruit.

When not in use and in the winter period, the feed trays can be rotated within the main body to provide greater insulation. The removable cassette, which simply lifts out can be removed for inspection and /or monitoring.

The Butterfly/Moth feeder is an attractive and interesting product suitable for any wildlife garden.

Siting: Site the feeder/habitat in a warm sheltered position, out of prevailing winds, ideally to catch the morning sun. 
The box can be fixed to a tree, fence or similar, or can be positioned on a flat surface.
