A Ladybird House?

Seen them in catalouges, seems that ladybirds are the way to go!

Best of luck, I love logging on to see your pictures!

Default box

Hi, it measures 34 x24 x 6cm and will have more wood added to it to make this. In fact - three wooden placemats. It will have an apex roof made from these placemats and it wont be painted as these creatures don't like the fumes.

Default You got it!

***********Yes, Kilk - you got it! A bat house.*************
I have bats living in the attic of the cottage and this is the recommended way to get them out without harming them. (Bats are a protected species) I will keep you updated as to progress

....and Kilk wins!......a free bat ;-)

Well done, kilk!

Guess-work is thirsty work. All things considered, a bottle of what's below seems appropriate...

I demand a stewards inquiry!!!

Kilkie, I think you had inside information! You know I have bats in the attic!
Chris, leave it to you to find the perfect prize for Kilkie.

Can I disqualify Kilk and make a coffin for a hamster like Andrew said?

Default bat house

This is what a bat house looks like. As you can see this box is nearly there already.

And this is what my bats look like. This one was found hanging from my tab top curtains in my batroom..sorry, I mean bathroom. Now you know why I need a bathouse for the garden.
Bats are harmless creatures and eat oodles of insects so are good to have around...just not inside the house.

perhaps they would relocate to your brown bin. ill give you a few garden stones to help them settle, and a nice piece of delph for you to smash if they don't!
