This Ladybug Castle will make a regal home for the little ladies in your garden! Create a safe sanctuary for the helpful ladybugs in your garden by loosely filling it with grass clippings, leaves or the corrugated cardboard included. Dampen slightly and place in your garden out of direct sunlight and leave undisturbed. Position the castle near a treasured rose or veggie patch - aphids are a Lady Bug's favorite food! Each Lady Bug Castle is handcrafted using natural stoneware and fired to2000*F, making it entirely weatherproof. They will maintain their beauty in ice, snow or intense heat. No fading, no cracking. Each Lady Bug Castle measures about 7" x 4" with a removable lid. Handcrafted in Kingston, Ontario by one of our awesome team members at Amaranth Stoneware. Weatherproof stoneware, lead-free, safe and natural! We are proud of our Canadian made products, and hope you take pleasure in our art.
