The new multi-species Dewdrop Insect hotel provides safe haven for butterflies, moths and other insects in your garden. Invertebrates of all kinds form the basis of a healthy ecosystem, so they are to be encouraged whole-heartedly in our gardens. The rear of the insect house may be opened so that some twigs or straw can be added to assist roosting. The habitat may be used during summer and also as an over-wintering space for certain species such as non-migratory butterflies. Made from FSC plywood with a decorative woven bamboo finish around the sides of the Dewdrop. The front and rear panels are painted a pretty aqua blue and may be topped up with a water-based shade to maintain appearance. No chemicals have been used in the construction of this habitat. Position close to flowering plants in a sheltered location, ideally out of the prevailing wind and positioned in dappled sunlight.
