It might be too sweet or outright bad for you, but very ripe fruit is a tasty treat for butterflies. While it’s true many butterflies like flowers, they also can’t get enough of overripe fruit. Just place all types of cut fruit like watermelon, mango, apples and bananas in a bowl or platter, and put it where butterflies can find it. They’ll feed on the sweet, sugary water and benefit from the natural minerals in the fruit. Keep in mind the fresh fruit will also attract other insects (including bees), so keep it far away from your home if that concerns you. When it’s time to dispose of the fruit, simply toss it right into the compost bin.
