The ladybird tower is constructed of a solid birch log or similar and provides a safe and durable home for approximately 100 ladybirds. Entrance holes are drilled around the log at 45degrees angle into the central chamber, which is filled with a natural material - this provides insulation and security. Ideally situated out of prevailing winds, the tower comes complete with a pole (approx 30cm), to raise it of the ground. Perfect for situating among plants, in borders or in lawns. Although not essential, attractant and preservative can be added to the outside of the tower and central chamber. The roof can be removed for inspection and cleaning. Keep the ladybirds in your garden as a natural pest control.
