How to build a butterfly house. These 'houses' or waystations provide a safe haven for butterflies to sleep in -- they are a one night stopover spot. Butterflies do not nest or live in these boxes, or anywhere else for that matter. They only stay in one spot long enough to lay their eggs on species-specific plants (for example Monarchs lay their eggs on milkweed plants only). Butterfly houses replace dead, hollow tree trunks and logs which are the natural roosting choices for many butterflies and moths, and which have been removed in many places by urban sprawl.
