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?

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.
