  • Ladybirds – Ladybirds are one of the best known beneficial insect and a welcome sight in the garden, where they happily munch away on greenfly and other tasty pests. By boosting their numbers, it will lead to a permanent decrease in the number of pests in your garden i.e. aphids and spider mites. The Beneficial Insect Tower has lots of areas for ladybirds to breed and over-winter in.
  • Lacewings – Adult lacewings are attractive flying insects with translucent pale green wings that feed on nectar, but their larvae feed on aphids and other soft bodied insects such as whitefly and thrip eating hundreds of pests each. The majority of adult lacewings do not survive the winter due to a lack of over-wintering sites, so by positioning a insect house you can help more of these beneficial insects to survive the winter, so that they can lay hundreds of eggs in the spring.
  • Solitary Bees House – The holes will attract non-swarming bees like the Red Mason Bee, Leafcutter Bee and other solitary bees. The bees can nest in the tubes, drilled wooden blocks or the removable wooden nesting trays, which can be easily removed for  cleaning or for “harvesting cocoons” to re-locate to other areas of the garden or give them to friends.
  • Butterflies – The upper section contains a slotted wooden cartridge to shelter from the winter weather. You can also add dry bark, straw, dry leaves or shredded paper to create a warm, sheltered home for the winter.
