About us

At Homes for Bugs we're passionate about the environment and all our bug houses are individually designed and handmade from rescued wood so there will be some imperfections (nail holes, rough edges etc) but the bugs really don’t mind.

As we always say, "If you're looking for perfection, you've come to the wrong place!"

According to the Wood Recyclers Association, 5 million tonnes of waste wood is generated in the UK every year. We rescue some of this wood to individually design and build handmade bug houses that offer beneficial insects safe and secure places to call home.

Our passion is in recycling and raising awareness to help as many people to understand the importance of looking after the environment whilst encouraging everyone to think about improving the biodiversity in their gardens and neighbourhoods.

There’s a lot of focus of the plight on the honey bee (and rightly so), but did you know that a single red mason bee is equivalent to 120 worker honeybees in the pollination it provides and these bees, along with other solitary bees, ladybirds, hoverflies and lacewings are so important to the pollination of our plants and the natural control of garden pests. That’s why we focus our efforts on building homes specifically for these types of beneficial insects.
