Wildlife World unveils dewdrop range at Glee

This Autumn, Wildlife World is unveiling a range of new products, including its new novelty Dewdrop range for birds, bees and other beneficial garden insects, available as a Bird Nest Box, Bird Feeder, Butterfly, Moth & Insect Habitat or Bee & Bug home.

Each of the products has a decorative bamboo rattan exterior and are dyed using a pale aqua blue paint for a modern and attractive alternative to conventional wildlife products. The range reflects Wildlife World’s commitment to all wildlife species and is created using only sustainable materials including FSC certified timber and water-based paints and sealants.

Wildlife World’s team of wildlife experts and design specialists have added detail and workability to this new range under a new design, whilst ensuring that it remains beneficial and practical for the different wildlife species to use.

Norman Sellers, managing director at Wildlife World, said: "This new range is very exciting for us because it is very different to our usual style and really stands out against our other products. This range is very attractive with a rattan and painted blue finish which would make it a nice gift for anyone to receive regardless of their garden size or knowledge of wildlife."

The new Dewdrop range includes an alternative bird nesting box that offers a beneficial habitat to a range of small bird species such as Blue Tits and Great Tits. The box features a small entrance hole to allow the birds to enter, finished with a 32mm stainless steel protector. The size of the hole deters larger birds away from the nester to protect nesting birds and their young.

The range also features a bird feeder, which uses a large front entrance to allow birds to perch whilst feeding. The feeder can be filled with a range of food types and easily emptied and cleaned to help promote good bird hygiene.

Wildlife World has also introduced a Butterfly, Moth and Insect Habitat to the range which provides a safe home for a range of species. This product is particularly beneficial to gardeners as it encourages and invites invertebrates into gardens to help form the basis of a healthy ecosystem. The entrance is created so that many different types of insect can enter and use the habitat and can be opened up to allow users to add twigs or straw to assist roosting. The habitat can be used all year round, including the winter months for non-migratory butterflies.

The final product in the Dewdrop range is a new Bee & Bug Home. Wildlife World devotes much of its time to the conservation of solitary bees and other insects due to their major benefits to pollination and pest control in gardens. The habitat features nesting tubes designed especially for solitary bees, which are known to nest and lay their eggs in deep holes in wood or trees. It also offers nesting areas for other insects such as ladybirds and lacewings.
