Ladybugs need a safe haven in which to lay their eggs and ensure their developing larvae reach adulthood. One of the most beneficial — and adorable — bugs to invite to the garden, they'll happily feast on aphids, beetle larvae, thrips, whiteflies, mites, and a number of other soft-bodied insects — and their eggs! Encouraging a thriving population of ladybugs will help keep your garden healthy and growing, and this handcrafted stoneware castle does exactly that. It provides them with the shelter they need, is weatherproof, and has a lead-free glaze.
Loosely fill the castle with grass clippings, leaves, or corrugated cardboard (included). Dampen slightly, place it in the garden out of direct sunlight, and leave it be. Made in Kingston, Ontario — it's been thoroughly tested in the harshest Canadian weather. Guaranteed not to fade in the sun or crack in the snow.
