Our Fair Trade Outdoor Gifts…
These bug houses are the perfect outdoor gift and as the name suggests, they are the type of thing that you would want wildlife to be attracted to.
There are many different bugs that you might find in your bughouse, including; beetles, centipedes, spiders and worms.
As well as bees and wasps, butterflies and moths and even snails and slugs.
Positioning your bug box – The ideal spot for your bug box is somewhere shadowy in your garden. Look for the coolest, darkest place that has lots of cover over it, that will be a good place to start.
Make sure that there aren’t any predators: birds, snakes, rats…
If there aren’t any of these things then look for a place to hang the box.
A tree trunk or fence post is most likely the best place, look for somewhere that catches the sun in the morning, in the dappled shade all day and put the box facing that way.
Make sure that the rain can’t get to the bug box in a direct line, a little bit is fine.
but too much rain and the bugs might drown.
