The Ladybird Palace is a small, wall-mountable ladybird house that not only looks great, but it is also an effective habitat for ladybirds, lacewings, solitary bees and other beneficial insects.
The Ladybird Palace is designed to be wall mounted (fix to a wall, fence, tree or stake) although it can be stood on its base in amougst flowers - position next to plants, which normally get aphids i.e. roses, honeysuckle, beans etc in a sheltered, warm spot away from prevailing winds. The main log has a hollow centre, which provides safe refuge for beneficial insects etc - it is accessed via holes, which are drilled at an upward angle to prevent rain entering keeping the central chamber area dry. Holes have also been drilled in the base to allow solitary bees to nest in - perfect for solitary mason or leaf-cutter bees. Supplied in a box with siting instructions. Dimensions 25cm high x 10cm wide x 10cm deep.
