The Andrew James Wooden Insect House is the perfect home for natural pest control creators. Ladybirds, bees, centipedes and lacewings will all call this their home 365 days a year.
Our lovely wooden insect house is a safe environment where beneficial garden creatures can shelter, hibernate and nest, where they won’t be disturbed by gardening or landscaping.
Did you know there could be over 2000 different species of insect in your garden? They’re usually well-hidden, but they can be fascinating to watch if you get the chance.
One advantage of an insect house is that you will know exactly where to look, and it also means the insects have a habitat which is safe from being disturbed by gardening and landscaping.
The dry, dead wood in the lower section provides a home for insects such as ladybirds and lacewings which act as natural pest control for your garden thanks to their appetite for aphids! It’s also an appealing environment for elusive creatures like centipedes and beetles.
The bamboo canes provide holes in which solitary bees like to lay their eggs – look out for tubes blocked with a little mud or plant material and you’ll know there are eggs inside!
Bees are extremely useful for pollinating your flowering plants, and having them buzzing around is a wonderful way of adding an extra dimension of movement and sound to your garden.
The insect house is constructed from sturdy, weather resistant fir wood and the natural finish means it will blend in with the living elements of your garden, while still standing out as a feature thanks to the appealing ‘insect hotel’ design.
