I don't mind them when they are outside. Unfortunately I've developed quite the phobic of them having to deal with so many indoors. :scared5:

Highly recommend arrowrood viburnum native to huge portion of us and Canada.
Or any of the other lovely native viburnum as berries also support wild birds

Spicebush swallowtail, I've planted the pretty native spicebush ( lots of nursery carry it) and sassafras tree also a host for them I believe! Picture on swamp milkweed , all pollinators love milkweed nectar. And in marsh flea bane

I showed my pretty butterfly picture with an old friend. He said wow I haven't seen butterflies in a long time! Then he asked me why is that? Because people don't have the native host tree's, or plants in their developed neighborhoods anymore. The gorgeous tiger tail uses our native black cherry. Our nstuve to most of USA black cherry just makes a droop of tiny berries that Birds love! I've never had any mess issues with this awesome tree! He seemed inspired to plant some natives !

I plant a small butterfly and bee garden behind my apartment building. Who doesn’t like pretty flowers and butterflies?
