Insect Boxes

Providing an insect box in your garden is a great way to make it more attractive to visiting insects. At NHBS we stock a large range of boxes designed for solitary bees, ladybirds, lacewings, wasps and many other creepy crawlies. Insect and bug boxes should be sited in a warm and dry place, preferably in a position where they will catch the morning sun. A location near to vegetation, wood piles or ponds will maximise the chance of your box being colonised. Most insect boxes can be attached to a tree or post at a height of 1-2 metres using a strong nail. Bumblebee boxes, however, should be sited on the ground or in a hedge or low wall in a sheltered, south-facing position. If your box has not been used after a year or two it may be worth moving it to a different location and to consider planting some nectar-rich food plants.
