Book Description

Transform your garden into a wildlife haven busting with life by learning how to provide supplementary nesting sites to a host of creatures. Bird, Bee and 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, the habitats of many of these species are under threat from intensive farming and the spraying of harmful chemicals. But, we can help them by building these safe havens in our gardens. Only a few basic woodworking skills are needed to create these unique and quirky houses. 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 cutting list. Each section of the book has detailed information on choosing locations, maintenance, species habits and nesting requirements.

Format: Paperback
The previous reviewer obviously wanted a totally different book and this did not fit her needs. This book is beautifully illustrated, contains plans and construction directions, shows how and where to mount your finished projects and what they will attract. From the cover to the back notes, it offers everything you need to attract birds, bats and bees to your property. Yes you can get the same info on the internet but the internet sometimes is unavailable or inaccessible when you live out in the country.

If you love small building projects and the outdoor creatures, then this is a fun book to own. The projects are well illustrated and the instructions are easy to follow.
