BUTTERFLY BIOME

€34.99

 BUTTERFLY BIOME View Large Image
40378

Description

In summer use the habitat as a butterfly feeder with the nectar feeding tray folded down to allow butterfly food and sweet ripe fruit to be served to your butterflies. In winter the tray can be folded up to make a cosy over-wintering home for non-migratory butterflies. The biome comes with nice dry bark inside but you may add other dry material such as cut straw to create niches for other over-wintering beneficial insects.

The Butterfly Biome also comes complete with a free butterfly identification and life cycle guide.

Siting

  • Site the butterfly biome in a sunny sheltered position, out of prevailing winds.
  • Sow your native wildflower seeds in Spring or Autumn nearby to encourage visiting butterflies and beneficial insects

Feeding

  • The nectar pots should be regularly filled with Wildliife World Butterfly Food with added vitimins or a sugar water solution. Feeding is especially effective in early Spring and late Summer when natural nectar is scarce
  • Regularly wash the nectar pots and replace the butterfly food to prevent build up of bacteria to which the butterflies may be susceptible
  • Place over ripe fruit in the central plastic bowl, the sweeter the better

Maintenance

The butterfly house is made from slow-seasoned timber which is naturally durable so does not require additional treatments. The blue water-based painted finish is for decorative purposes and may be topped up periodically to maintain its appearance.

Observation

  • You should see butterflies, hoverflies, bees and wasps drinking from the feeding cups. The over wintering chamber provides shelter for many beneficial garden insects such as lacewings, butterflies or ladybirds.
