Beneficial insects are waking up all over the country, a little warm sunshine and they emerge form under rocks and behind tree bark, out of crevasses and under piles of leaves. They awake and immediately start to do good in your garden, a Ladybird will eat 4,000 to 6,000 aphids in it's lifetime. Not to mention the Green and Black fly that slugs and spiders eat. Then you have the larger garden friends, like Hedgehogs and Frogs and Toads all of which will take care of any slugs and snails that you may have and so you see the benefit of having insects in your garden, they are part of a food chain that takes great care of your garden plants and vegetables. We specialise in beneficial insect homes and have a wide range of products to choose from. The daddy of them all is the Insect conservation study centre. Designed especially to the inquisitive mind and prodding finger, then you have the big insect biome, with  lots of observation windows to see what is going on, not to mention lots of small insect habitats that will fit into any garden space and soon start delivering benefit to your garden plants and vegetables. We even stock a bee colony! the Beepole Lodge has live bumble bees for you to entertain in your garden this summer, they will pollinate your plants and vegetables, you can move the lodge around your garden to improve yields and then the queens from this year will set up new colonies in your garden and you will have your own bee friendly garden, as well as helping the bumble bee population to increase.
