Butterfly nectar food

RSPB > Wildlife > Bees
    Wildlife World butterfly food is a specially formulated mix of sugars, vitamins and proteins which can be used on its own or ideally with a sponge/feeder to supply a valuable source of food fo butterflies, moths and other nectar feeding insects.

    This easy to use food mix provides a valuable source of nectar for butterflies, moths and other insects at times when there are few flowers available like early spring or late summer, or when habitats have been over-managed and nectar is in short supply.

    The mix is easy to prepare and can be used with butterfly feeders or presented in a shallow dish. This special solution has been formulated to ensure the sugars do not crystallize in the stomach of the insect, which can be a risk with simple sugar solutions.
    Unused solution can be stored for up to 7 days in a refrigerator.
