The Butterfly House near Whitehouse plans to open for the season today after postponing the opening because it sprayed its plants with pesticides and killed more than 600 butterflies.

The Butterfly House, 11455 Obee Rd., is a seasonal tourist attraction featuring more than 60 species of butterflies housed in an indoor garden. It was scheduled to open last Sunday.

For the first time, the staff sprayed its plants with pesticides this year to preserve them over the winter. When staff members put butterflies into the garden last week, they died from exposure to the chemicals.

The Butterfly House has replaced all the plants in its garden and ordered more farm-raised butterflies for the exhibit. The attraction has about 600 butterflies now and almost 2,000 in cocoon-like chrysalises waiting to emerge."
