A fantastic nature gift for children and any budding naturalist, the illuminated Mini Beast Centre is perfect for collecting and studying insects. Even better, a built-in solar lamp allows it to light up in the dark, which means it will also attract moths.
Just the thing for insect collecting and field trips, as well as moth study.
- Insects and bugs can be placed inside the study centre either via the opening top or through the the perspex window side-opening ports.
- Create a temporary habitat by putting twigs, stems and flowers inside whilst you study your bugs and beasties.
- A rope handle makes your minibeast centre easy to carry so you’ll want to take it out and about to collect interesting creatures.
- The solar lamp will attract night-flying insects and bugs such as moths and beetles.
Simply leave the minibeast centre out in bright light during the day to ensure that the rechargeable battery gets a good charge. Then in the evening open the side windows to allow the insects attracted by the light to enter the study chamber.
When you’ve enjoyed looking at them just open all the windows and top and release them back into the wild.
The Mini Beast Centre is made of slow-seasoned FSC certified timber so will be be durable and not require any chemical treatments.
