Product Description

Product Description

A natural habitat to attract ladybirds and other beneficial insects, these fascinating insect homes are constructed from solid FSC birch logs and oak, larch, or similar timber for durability. The Ladybird Tower has a hollow central chamber producing natural insulation and security. Intersecting the chamber are many holes drilled into the log at an upward angle, to prevent water ingress, but which allows the insects to reach the insulated and safe inner chamber.

Ladybird Food/Attractant can be used with the tower if necessary and/or the tower may be used to release larvae with a food source. Not only fun and interesting, the Ladybird Tower provides a habitat for beneficial garden insects and comes complete with a ground pole which is easy to site into lawns, sheltered flower beds, wooded glades or even in planters. The naturally durable timbers require no preservative.This attractive natural home for Ladybirds has an Oak roof which is removeable to access inner central chamber. Upward gradient access holes for Ladybirds to find insulated overwintering. Ladybirds are beneficial in the garden as they are natural predators of aphids and greenfly therefore reducing chemicals. Complete with ground pole for fixing in flowerbeds and wild areas. Suitable for Ladybird species orientated to lower feeding or habitats.

  • 1 Ladybird Tower complete with stake

    I've bought this ladybird tower for my partners daughter for easter instead of a boring old egg! Chocolate is so over rated in my opinion! ;)

    This Ladybird tower is made from naturally weather resistant timbers so needs no preservatives used on it at all. It is a log with a base and a roof at just under 19 inches high. A wooden spike is provided to enable it to be adhered to the ground. The roof can be removed easily via two screws so you can clean it inside if need be or release Ladybird larvae (available on Amazon!) and a food source into it too for breeding your own Ladybirds.

    The log section is where they reside. It's a series of upwardly drilled holes so the rain can't get in, that all lead to the central hollowed out area. This will keep them safe, dry and warm.

    There's a few simple steps to attract Ladybirds into your garden and tower. . . .

    - Situate your tower in a sheltered spot near rotted vegetation if possible.
    - There are several plants that you can grow around your tower to attract Ladybirds
    such as Angelica, Dill, Geraniums, Fennel, caraway and Dandelions!
    - Ladybirds and their larvae are carnivorous feeding mainly on greenfly and aphids, so if you can, let them multiply to provide a food source for the Ladybirds. If there is no food, they will go elsewhere! If you get desperate use a little soap solution to deter greenfly and aphids as this will not harm the Ladybirds! Which brings us onto. . .
    - Don't use chemical pesticides in your garden. Ladybirds are very sensitive to chemicals and will be killed off!

    That's about it! I still love Ladybirds at 43 years old and it's almost magical when a child finds one and lets it run over their hand!

    Being a bit dopey I didnt realise the stake was screwed to the back of the tower and I thought it was missing at first ..couldnt find a place to put it in the ground and wanted it on the fence but there are no fittings so i just used an old picture hook and bracket to hang it up.Bought some ladybird food for the tower and it looks really cute in the garden so I hope some little bugs move in soon!

    This is a sturdy, natural product which delighted my 11 year-old grandaughter who is keen on gardening and wildlife. My only disappointment is that there was no ladybird food available with it, I sourced that from a local garden centre.

    Mine rotted away in just two seasons. Never saw any ladybirds in it but it was home to some lovely bracket fungus for a while.

    So this product arrived superbly packaged. (lots of packing in the box to prevent any damage during transit. You have to unscrew what turns out to be the 'ground spike' from the main body of this tower and insert it in the hole underneath. This is all easily achieveable.
    I bought this for two reasons, I have just taken down a large tree which contained many ladybirds so wanted to give them somewhere to live in, and also I thought my nieces would find it an added attraction as I am also getting chickens (and in time, a beehive and butterfly home, etc).
    So, as I worked in the garden and was cutting up logs I made the effort to place any ladybirds I found on the tower. It wasn't easy - they seem to prefer the warmth of your hand! Anyway before long I had placed around six or seven on it and left them to their own devices.
    It was quite surprising when this morning (a nice warm one with the sun shining on the tower) to see six ladybirds 'sunbathing' at each little sun-facing window! I then popped a few more on and it seems to be going well so far!
    My only real criticism if I had to pick one would be that the wood doesn't appear to be treated so it may be worth just giving it a coat of something (just on the roof) prior to popping it outside - also remember to get it in the sun for the ladybirds to get their sunbathing in!! A nice little attraction and I can see myself getting another one in the not too distant future. I have also added a couple of my own photographs for others to see.

    The ladybird tower is just as described in the write up. It appears to be well made and looks lovely in the garden. The only thing I wished was that it also came with a way of fixing it to a wall rather than using the supplied ground level spike. Problem solved with a brass picture hanging bracket from a local DIY store. All I hope now is the ladybirds take up home in it.
