Ladybirds are a welcome sight in any backyard. Not only are they colourful and lovely to watch, but they also eat up aphids from your plants and help keep your garden healthy.
This Ladybird House makes a creative addition to any garden. It will be used by ladybirds and other insects in winter. Adult help is required to make this project.
Your ladybird house can help attract ladybirds to your garden or encourage those you release to stick around.
Avoid using chemicals and pesticides in the garden as they can deter good bugs like ladybirds that want to eat up your aphids for free. Leave little unknown bugs as they could grow into ladybirds. Lure ladybirds to your garden by making a concoction of honey, water and brewers yeast. Spread it in the garden and ladybirds will visit.
