Insect Boxes

Insects are an essential part of garden wildlife, and a great friend to gardeners by acting as pollinators for a hugely diverse range of plants, wild flowers, garden flowers, fruit and vegetables.  They are also a superb means of natural pest control as many insects, ladybirds being an excellent example, feed on aphids. We have a variety of insect boxes available that not only provide a secluded shelter and habitat for all sorts of different insect life to breed and hibernate, but also add an attractive feature to the garden.

'Tower' & 'Hotel' Insect Boxes

 

Our 'Tower' Insect Boxes and the 'Hotel' Insect Boxes both have three separate compartments, each filled with one of a variety of natural nesting materials.  The top section is filled with small logs and twigs whilst the other two sections are filled with pine cones, bark chips or wood chips.  They can be sited in a range of different locations, the 'Tower' Insect Box is designed to be suitable to mount on a wall, fence, tree or on a post, whilst the 'Hotel' Insect Box is intended to be left freestanding in a hedge or flower bed.  However, the 'Tower' Insect Box can also be left freestanding if you so wish and likewise the 'Hotel' Insect Box could be mounted on a suitable surface if so desired.
