Live Ladybird Lodge


Option

A wonderful lodge to house and release your Ladybirds

This Dragonfli Live Ladybird Lodge has been designed specifically as a safe release point and retreat for your Ladybirds. It has a lovely wooden and Ladybird coloured design that would suit any garden, or greenhouse. This lodge is the perfect gift for anyone wishing to have a more interactive experience with their Ladybirds. 

Key features:

  • Clear perspex window: for prime viewing of your Ladybirds
  • Unique Ladybird tubes: to fit Ladybirds inside, and release outside lodge
  • Hinged roof: enabling you to introduce more Ladybirds in replacement tubes
  • Attractive design: Ladybird design on front of lodge to slide tubes through

How do I set up and utilise the lodge?

House the Ladybirds inside the lodge using the Ladybird tubes provided. The Ladybirds can be released, and will freely venture, out of the lodge to feed on a variety of garden pests including Aphids. 

You can also fill the inside of your lodge with rose cuttings, twigs and straw to provide a safe haven for other beneficial insects in your garden.

Ladybirds will predominantly consume most species of Aphid, but will also feed on other soft-bodied pests such as Spider Mite and Thrip. We would, however, advise use of more specific predators in tackling these pests.
