Found a Butterfly?
What to do when you find a sleeping butterfly in your house?
If you find a hibernating (sleeping) butterfly in your house in winter this is what to do:
- very gently put it in a cardboard box
- leave it for half an hour or so in a cooler location to settle down
- now relocate the box to the inside of a shed, outhouse or garage, make sure that the box has an opening, so that the butterfly can escape when it wakes up in spring
