Schwegler Insect House for Solitary Insects

About this product

The removable front panel with transparent nesting tubes allows close observation of insect life and lifecycles; watch the cycle from egg-laying to development of the larvae, right up until the time the insect leaves the brood chamber the next season. This insect house is a perfect educational aid for nurseries, schools, colleges and wildlife centres, as well as private gardens.

The house provides a home for many interesting invertebrates such as solitary bees, wasps, spiders and other small creatures. Ideally place in a sunny location that is protected from wind or rain. Examples of good sites include allotment sheds, pergolas, walls, gardens and even balconies up to the third or fourth floor.

Remember to leave the house outside during the winter otherwise the insects will emerge from their winter hiding places too early and die. The house is made from wood-concrete; an exceedingly durable, rot-proof and breathable natural material designed to mimic the properties of natural nest sites and last 20 - 25 years. Note that it is essential to properly replace the front panel after each inspection to keep the occupants in darkness.
