TheAward winning Bee & Bug Biome is an attractive bee and bug habitat that provides a home for solitary bees, ladybirds and other beneficial insects such as lacewings. These either provide the vital role of pollination in your garden or are great at predator control, munching through aphids and the like.
The biome comes in a colourful gift carton complete with a FREE pack of British wildflower seeds especially selected to attract gentle pollinating bees plus a FREE bee species guide. This complete nature of the house and the nectar/ food plants is why this kit is called a biome encouraging you to create a complete habitat for your beneficial insects.
The biome is manufactured from durable natural FSC certified timber, and painted in an attractive soft green water based paint.
The bee and bug biome not only looks good in any garden and provides but makes the perfect gift for gardeners and nature-lovers alike.

Buglife is the only organisation in Europe devoted to the conservation of all invertebrates. We’re actively working to save Britain’s rarest little animals, everything from bees to beetles, worms to woodlice and jumping spiders to jellyfish.
There are more than 40,000 invertebrate species in the UK, and many of these are under threat as never before.
Invertebrates are vitally important to a healthy planet – humans and other life forms could not survive without them. The food we eat, the fish we catch, the birds we see, the flowers we smell and the hum of life we hear, simply would not exist without bugs. Invertebrates underpin life on earth and without them the world’s ecosystems would collapse.
Invertebrates are facing an extinction crisis
Today, thousands of invertebrate species are declining and many are heading towards extinction. Worldwide 150,000 species could be gone by 2050 if we do nothing.
Each invertebrate species plays a unique and important role in the web of life, but once lost, they cannot be replaced. Many invertebrates have incredible life stories yet to be told, and we literally don’t know what we are on the brink of losing.
Buglife’s aim is to halt the extinction of invertebrate species and to achieve sustainable populations of invertebrates.
We are working hard to achieve this through:
- Promoting the environmental importance of invertebrates and raising awareness about the challenges to their survival.
- Assisting in the development of legislation and policy that will ensure the conservation of invertebrates.
- Developing and disseminating knowledge about how to conserve invertebrates.
- Encouraging and supporting invertebrate conservation initiatives by other organisations in the UK, Europe and worldwide.
- Undertaking practical conservation projects that will contribute to achieving our aim.
