The first and original ladybird tower designed by us and much copied ever since. Beware of facsimile’s that don’t even have the hollow central core for the ladybirds to shelter in! Our ladybird towers for ladybirds and other beneficial insects are made from natural air dried FSC certified timber logs and the appearance may vary.
Each tower is cleverly constructed to provide hollow central chamber filled with straw to provide insulation and security for beneficial insects. Access to the central chamber is provided by paths drilled through the sides of the log. The central chamber is protected by the apex roof.
The ladybird tower comes with a ground pole (fixed at rear for transport). The allows the ladybird tower to be sited into lawns, sheltered flower beds, wooded glades or even in planters.
To encourage occupation of the tower by ladybirds you can smear ladybird food on the entrance holes.
The slow-seasoned naturally durable timbers require no chemical preservatives that might deter occupation of your ladybird tower.
