|Ladybird/Insect Tower |
A natural habitat for ladybirds and other beneficial insects. The Ladybird Tower has a central chamber filled with natural material. There are many holes drilled at an upward angle for the insects to reach the insulated and safe inner chamber. If necessary a roof panel may be removed for inspection or cleaning. SITING There is a ground pole provided so the tower is easy to site into lawns, sheltered flower beds, wooded glades or even in planters. Site out of prevailing winds in a warm spot. MAINTENANCE The roof and base are Oak, Larch or similar durable timber so no preservatives should be used as it may be harmful to the ladybirds. Ladybird Food/Attractant could be used with the tower if necessary. The tower may be used to release larvae with food source.
