Learn at home about the mini-beast friends and foes in your garden

Have you ever wondered what all the bugs you see in your garden are doing? Are they eating your precious plants or are they pollinating them and helping them to grow? Here is the essential fun-packed guide to pests and pollinators and what they do. Find out how plants attract pollinators, such as butterflies, bees and even ants and bats, and what you can do to tempt these creatures into your garden.

Help your kids learn about the power of pollinators and how to make your garden more appealing to them with loads of creepy-crawly facts and fun activities, including:
  • Planting flowers bees and other bugs love
  • Making a ladybird hotel
  • Keeping butterflies happy with wild flowers and nettles
Pull-out activities include:
  • 64 colour stickers
  • Big bugs survey sheet
  • Garden Heroes card game
  • Make a stag beetle mask
  • Who Eats Who? board game
For more about pollinators and how we can help them, have a look at Love Bees.
