I like the ones with the little blue tile on the front that supposedly attracts the
butterflies and lets them know it's a shelter (where do they come up with this
stuff?).  One that I saw for sale said to put sticks and leaves (it didn't specify
what type) inside it because caterpillars will go into it at night and eat the leaves
(I'm not making this up).
