Since making our first bug house back in March this year, it’s fair to say that things have gone a little bit crazy.
We started by using up any bits of scrap timber we could find but demand has grown so much that we’re now constantly on the look out for wood to rescue and turn into fab new homes for those all important garden insects.
Our latest finds include a load of garden decking and some old fencing that were destined for the tip.
Here are just a few of the bug houses we’ve made from the wood in the pictures above:
Most of our sales have been made at craft fairs and through friends and family but we’ve also had a fair number of orders come through our Facebook, Instagram and Twitter accounts and as the word is spreading, demand is increasing.
Just recently two of our bug houses were bought as gifts and we were asked to send them out by post – using MyHermes courier service they were sent off to their new home…in Scotland. Much to the delight of their new owners Alex and Summer.
We’ve got to be honest, we’re a little jealous of the location our bug houses have found themselves in – such a lovely setting.
We hope the bugs in Scotland realise how lucky they are to be the first to have one our individually designed Homes for Bugs outside of England!
Come take a look at some more of our customer photos in the gallery – maybe you’ll be inspired to get your very own bug house.
