Butterflies are important pollinators, so anything you can do to help them thrive in your garden is a step in the right direction. If you ever see a butterfly that is slow-moving or helpless due to a torn wing, you can actually help it. A tiny piece of transparent tape can help repair a torn wing, enough to mend it and enable the butterfly to fly again. This will add a few extra days to its lifespan, which could be enough for it to reproduce. You can also leave a dish of diluted sugar water out to help give butterflies an energy boost.
