Make your own ladybird house

This is a great little project for yourself or to do with children.

You will need:
An empty and clean 2l bottle
Scissors
Bamboo
Sticks
Leaves

Cut your drinks bottle in half. Cut your bamboo and sticks to the length of the half you are using. Pack it tight with sticks, bamboo and leaves, creating a nice dark hiding space for ladybirds and other insects.
Place it in your garden hidden in foliage, preferably near a plant that attracts lots of insects. Quietly observe during the summer to find lots of insects to identify.
