This is a wonderful way to help the environment. Studies have shown that butterflies and moths prefer to lay their eggs on native plants. In turn, the resulting caterpillars provide the protein that immature birds must have to develop bone and muscle. A decline in native insects is directly related to a growing decline in our bird populations.
