The Q&A Archives: Natural Remedies

Question: I read about a Lysol/water cure for keeping cats out of a garden. However, my garden contains Lantana to attract butterflies. Will the Lysol also repell the butterflies or just the four legged pests?

Answer: According to information in Butterfly Gardening in Florida, butterflies use smell to locate nectar plants. I am afraid that a strong Lysol odor on these plants might keep butterflies away, at least for a time after plants were sprayed.
