Bee and Bug Biome
The Bee and Bug Biome will provide valuable habitat in your garden for solitary bees and other insects. At a time when many of our native insects are struggling, this is a fantastic way to give them a helping hand.
The top chamber features seven wooden nesting tubes in a wooden block, together with bamboo tubes of various sizes. A centre feeding hole is perfect for attracting ladybirds, earwigs and lacewings. The lower chamber is filled with pine cones which provide plenty of nooks and crannies for insects such as lacewings. These little creatures, as natural predators of aphids, are great friends of the gardener! Removing the wooden retainer dowel allows you to replace the pine cones with alternative natural materials, such as straw or bark, which will provide an excellent winter habitat for lacewings, ladybirds, woodlice, earwigs and many other bugs.
The Bug and Bee Biome can be painted with a water-based exterior paint. (An annual coat of paint will both keep it looking its best and prolong its life).
Includes free bee guide and wildflower seeds for bees!
