How to attract butterflies to a butterfly house?

I bought a butterfly house, I was wondering how to attact butterfiles to the butterfly house, where should I put it (sun or shade)? I asked my friends about that, and I want to share this with you.

First, you need to paint the butterfly house in bright colors, such as purple, red, yellow and pink. Of course you can put images of flowers in a combination of colors on the butterfly house to attract butterflies' attention.

Second, plant brightly colored flowers, like asters, daisies, zinnias and purple coneflower, provide the perfect place to perch.

Third, put the flowerbed in a sunny location. Butterflies feed in the sun and will frequent gardens in full sun. Consider a butterfly feeder filled with sweet nectar or with decaying fruit. Although it may not be appealing to you, butterflies will swarm to soft fruit as it begins to decay.

Fourth, you need to provide a water source. A shallow saucer provides more than enough water for delicate butterflies. Don't forget to pour water on flat rocks or on stone walkways. Placing your butterfly house near sources of moisture will encourage them to investigate and will increase the chances they'll choose the house for shelter.

Fifth, plant some host plants, butterflies will lay their eggs on these plants. Young caterpillars feed on the foliage when they emerge and may form a chrysalis on the same plant. When butterflies emerge, they are likely to seek shelter in your butterfly house.

What type of jewelry is best for a belly button piercing?

Following is the question: [I guess some persons have the same problem!]

I have had my belly button pierced for 2 years and all of a sudden it's getting itchy and uncomfortable and I think it may have something to do with the jewelry. I honestly don't know what it is, can't be great though cuz it was less than $20. It's beginning to get a little dark (the piercing). If I change the jewelry will that help the darkness go away?

Best Answer which is chosen by voters:
You need to remove your current piercing and retire it:) Let your belly button heal and clean it. Upgrade to a surgical steel belly button ring or 14k gold (Not Plated). ----- I do agree with her!

Other Answers:
Answer 1:
Take the jewelry out and wash the belly button very good with alcohol and q-tips. Use Surgical steel, or Gold for your piercing. Any silver, copper, or the other metals will turn a little and possibly irritate the piercing. ---- In my opinion, this anwer is also very good.

Answer 2:
Try andonized titanium. They are the least allergenic metal. I've had a titanium barbell in my rook for 4 or 5 years now without a problem but the steel ones start to break down much faster. (I'm allergic to nickel in the steel) --- In fact, titanium is a little expensive.

Answer 3:
yeah, it sounds like the jewelry you got wasn't very high grade, you need to be buying jewelry thats made from surgical steel.
