1:10 ratio of honey to water. 1 tsp of honey to 10 tsp of hot water. Allow this to cool. Place into small plastic cap that has been wash and rinsed. I'm using a small Live Monarch cube (11"x11"), plastic side down so that I can zip it from the bottom. Paper towel over the plastic. I can set up two lids for feeding in this cube. After you start the butterflies feeding, then zip the cube closed and let them finish eating. Dip their feet and face into a bowl or cup of water 2-3 times to wash off the honey and water.
