    Why have a bug house in your garden?

    Insects like ladybirds, lacewings and solitary bees are the gardener's friend. Attracting and keeping these insects helps plants pollinate and keeps the number of aphids down.

    This wonderful Elegance insect habitat is 39 cm high and made in the UK from FSC cedar. A great addition to any garden.

    As this product is made from natural wood, the colour of each nest box can vary slightly.

    Our Elegance insect habitat is designed to complement the Elegance nest box. Buy both together and save £3.

    Excellent buy
    I put this up in late February. Apart from being very sturdy and beautiful to look at, I am getting huge pleasure watching solitary bees checking out all the different tubes until making their selection then seeing them gradually blocking them up. So far 8 tubes are occupied but the pace is stepping up now. I'm like a small child checking it out every day.
    I would recommend this product to everyone.

    RSPB response: Thank you for your great review. It is really good to hear how the you and the bees are enjoying the habitat!

    I bought one of these a couple of years ago, probably at the wrong time of year. A few solitary bees used it last year and on the whole I was disappointed. However, this year there have been dozens of bees around it for several weeks (May) and now nearly all the cells are full. It seems as though it takes a while to get established but now it is teeming. It looks lovely in the garden and I would definitely recommend it.
