Although UK bats are a protected species, bat numbers have decreased dramatically due to the decrease of natural habitats such as hedgerows, woodlands and ponds.
As all bats in the UK eat insects, they are a great form of natural pest control.
Many bat species roost in buildings and are therefore vunerable to building work or demolition.
You can help to encourage bats by putting up bat boxes or roosts. Bats use different roosts at different times of the year but will return to the same roost annually. Bats do not bring bedding or make nests in their roosts but simply hang upside down. In summer, the roosts are used for female bats to have their babies (maternity roosts). In winter, bats hibernate and will look for some where cool and quiet.
The bat box may be positioned 2.5-5 metres high on a building or a mature tree, more detailed instructions are included.
Give your ladybirds somewhere to over-winter in.
Ladybirds are an especially important insect for the garden and the organic gardener. This delightful ladybird tower is the perfect winter habitat for them. The tower has a central chamber filled with natural material. There are many holes drilled all around the tower at an upward angle for the insects to reach the insulated and safe inner chamber. (If required the roof panel may be removed for cleaning or inspection).
Siting. There is a ground pole provided which easily fits into the base making the tower able to be sited into lawns, sheltered flower beds, wooded glades or even in planters. Site out of prevailing winds and in a warm location.
The ladybird tower is an thoughtful gift for young and old alike and is an improved version of an old favourite we’ve brought back into our range. The main body of the tower is made from birch, whilst the roof and base are oak, larch or similar occurring naturally durable timber, so no preservative need be used as it may be harmful to the insects.
Simply unscrew the pole from the back of the tower and insert into the silver birch log and stake into the the ground.
