Butterflies are one of our very favorite insects. The fact that they do not sting or bite, are brightly colored, and do not become pests in people’s homes has something to do with why most people enjoy seeing them fly around and would seldom think of killing one (as one might do with other insects thought of only as “bugs”). Most people think that butterflies simply make the world a prettier place. However, like other life forms in the world, they have a place and serve a purpose. For the plant world, butterflies pollinate or carry pollen from plant to plant, helping fruits, vegetables, and flowers to produce new seeds. From the animal point of view, butterflies are near the bottom of the food chain and provide food (especially in their caterpillar stage) for birds, mammals, and other insects.
A butterfly’s wings are covered in scales, which are shed over time as part of the insect’s life cycle. For some butterflies, the scales can come off if you touch the wings, which can cause some damage but won’t kill the butterfly. … Touching monarchs’ wings does not cause them to lose scales.
