An insect hotel is a safe habitat for solitary bees, butterflies, ladybugs and other beneficial insects, and increases biodiversity in the garden.
This lovely butterfly house constructed from solid certified FSC wood and bamboo. It has a weathered timber finish and is designed for your colourful friends. The housing has a natural wood colour and it will be a nice ornament as well as an excellent nesting spot for butterflies.
Slots in the butterfly houses keep birds out while offering butterflies shelter from the wind and the weather. Each butterfly house has an opening for cleaning, with which you can take better care of your winged friends. They are ready to be mounted in your garden.
Provides a safe and dry haven for butterflies to hibernate over the winter. With narrow perch points and entrance ways, the butterfly tower is the perfect hotel accommodation for our fluttering friends. Viewing hole lets you observe any critters inside.
This butterfly tower is made from certified FSC wood and has a weathered timber finish with acrylic viewing window.
When assembled with the perch posts the butterfly tower dimensions are 39cm (h) x 24.5cm (w) x 10.5 cm (d)
It can be placed at ground height, or nailed to a wall, post or tree branch. Place a few twigs and leaves inside the tower. The tower can be painted or not. Butterflies are attracted by colour, particularly to purple and yellow.
If a butterfly can not find food and insect accessible water, it will move on to where food, water and shelter is available. To attract butterflies to your garden, plant lots of flowers, not only for the butterflies themselves, but also for the caterpillars. Then position this box close to the scented flowers and in a sheltered spot where it will catch the early morning sun. Butterflies love shallow muddy puddles. A makeshift puddle can be a saucer with a layer of soil, a landing rock and water.
The best position for the butterfly tower is around one metre off the ground near scented flowers if possible (buddleia is a favourite), and south facing to maximise the early sun. Over the worst winter months store the box in a shed or outhouse which will vastly increase survival rates.
