Did you know that when the temperatures get cooler outside, butterflies will seek out warmth and often end up inside our homes? While the daytime temperatures indoors may be ideal, when the central heating turns on at night, it can become problematic for butterflies. They'll fly around the house to seek out cooler conditions and end up expending all of their energy to total exhaustion. If you do find a butterfly, don't kill it: Instead, use an empty shoebox to capture it and take it outdoors to shelter, such as a storage shed, or even your garage.
