GLEE 2015 saw the exclusive launch of Wildlife World’s two new innovations within its range of sustainable nature products and habitats as it introduced two ‘supersize’ additions to its vast product range.

The company has adapted its popular Bee and Bug Biome and Solitary Bee Hive to create giant styles of the products as a focal point for leisure parks, retail environments and interpretation centres, as well as a perfect educational tool for schools and nurseries.

Standing at 1.5m tall the two products are designed to be real showstoppers and talking points amongst visiting families and customers, whilst still providing a working habitat for beneficial insects.

Norman Sellers, Managing Director at Wildlife World, commented “We originally designed the Giant Bee & Bug Biome and Solitary Bee Hive for schools as they allow young children to easily observe the nesting habits of the insects, though we soon recognised that they would also be an exciting and attractive product for the leisure and tourism industry. They are very large in size and unusual which makes them very intriguing and we hope that they will encourage people across all industries to show an interest in the conservation of nature.”

The Giant Bee & Bug Biome takes its design from Wildlife World’s original award winning normal size product. The biome offers a variety of habitat types to attract many different insects, including solitary bees, ladybirds, lacewings and other beneficial garden insects that are vital in the pollination in gardens. The nature of the biome encourages its owners to provide a suitable habitat for species using the nesting tubes and logs which can also be used for observation during the hibernation months and all year round.

Wildlife World’s Giant Solitary Bee Hive is also based on an existing product that has proven popular as an effective habitat for the species. Especially designed for solitary bees, the nesting tubes are precisely sized to attract non-swarming, friendly bees including the Red Mason, Leafcutter and other types of solitary bee, as they are naturally attracted to holes in wood unlike other larger species including the Bumblebee. Solitary bees are safe around children and pets, as they do not sting making this particular product suitable for leisure parks, farms and other family day attractions.

The two giant habitats are designed and tested at Wildlife World to ensure they are safe and beneficial to the insects. Handmade in the UK, the products are made using sustainable FSC certified timber and natural water-based paints and sealants to prevent any exposure of chemicals to the nesting species.
