I also don't think we need worry! The butterflies have more sense than
humans it seems.
They are no more likely to choose one of these "houses" in the wrong spot
than they are to choose an unsuitable natural place to overwinter.

 Anne Kilmers shed with the broken window is favorite for me. A favorite
"unatural" choice in UK is very old churches. (So they are useful for
something anyway!)
