Overview

Transform your garden into a wildlife haven bursting with life by learning how to provide supplementary nesting sites to a host of creatures. Bird, Bee & Bug Houses explains all you need to know about how to create the perfect nesting place for a wide variety of species including birds, bats, butterflies, lacewings, ladybugs, and rare solitary bees. Essential pollinators, predators and seed-spreaders, many of these species are threatened from intensive farming and the spraying of harmful chemicals. But, we can help them by building these safe havens in our gardens.

These unique and quirky houses can be created with only a few basic woodworking skills. A range of materials (some recycled or scavenged) and finishes are used in order to make sure they are as attractive as they are practical. All the basic techniques, tools, and materials needed to create your bird, bee, or bug house are explained and each project has a detailed exploded diagram with cutlist. Each section of the book has detailed information on choosing locations, maintenance, species' habits, and nesting requirements.
