Pollinators across Ireland are having a really, really hard time. This kit is designed to be the ultimate pollinator-boosting kit for the school grounds to help our bees, butterflies and wildflowers.
There are two Solitary Bee Homes included in the kit that provide homes for these often overlooked pollinators. The home also has compartments for other beneficial insects such as Ladybirds and Lacewings.
Two Butterfly Houses offer the perfect shelter and feeding station for Butterflies. Pull down the front door of the house to reveal a butterfly feeding tray where you can place sweet, ripe fruit during the spring and summer. Close the door during autumn and winter to create a cosy resting chamber.
Two Ladybird Towers have been expertly crafted from natural logs to create much needed shelter for our tiny friends. The towers are attached to a pole to allow them to be sited around flower beds.
The kit also includes everything you need to create a beautiful wildflower patch at the school. Our School Wildflower Seed Pack is a special mix of Irish wildflower seed designed to help pollinators (400g seed/ chaff mix for full coverage of 40 to 70 sq m).
Also included are a range of printable resources for the classroom to help your students get to know their local flowers including games and identification posters (these will be emailed to you for printing on the school printer). These are custom made by us at 'Biodiversity in Schools' to feature Irish wildlife and suit schools in Ireland.
This is the complete pack to help pollinators at your school!
