Butterfly and Moth House with Feeder (WW50)
Made from solid FSC timber, this new butterfly/moth feeder/habitat features a special removable feed tray together with a safe over-wintering habitat. The feed tray is designed and coloured to emulate garden nectar sources and utilises a special ultra violet paint which is both visible and attractive to butterflies. Small nectar pots for Wildlife World butterfly food or a sugar/water solution combine with a larger pot suitable for fruit and other attractants. Although the main house will be used for roosting and hibernating, the opening side door allows the insertion of flower attractants such as buddleia spp. The following may also use the house for hibernating: Small Tortoiseshell, Peacock (often found in sheds and outbuildings) and the Comma butterfly. Additionally if nectar is available, the feeder may help Bumble Bees survive in early spring. Less commonly the Silver Winged Fritillary may use the box to lay eggs (preferably sited in mature trees). The chrysalis could be formed on the roof or internal branches.
Siting - Site the box in a warm sheltered position, out of prevailing winds, ideally to catch the morning sun. Use butterfly food and/or fruit to fill the pots. Insert buddleia flowers, or similar into the main house.
Features - Educational, interactive, made from durable FSC timber, utilises special attrtactive ultra-violet paint coatings - please note that the colour of the ultra-violet feed area may vary.
