The butterfly is a symbol of resurrection and re-birth. It is fitting to remember that someday these ugly piles going up all over the place will be condemned and something better put in their place.

You've confused two different insects. The one that eats cloth is pure brown, has feathery antennae and stays in the dark.

Butterflies come out during the day because they eat nectar from colorful flowers and their vision is suited to seeing spectra of visible light.

Moths use their feather antennae to negotiate in the darkness, and they are usually white or drably colored so they can hide during the day.
