Solar powered insect theatre


Probably like yourself, I’ve been taking advantage of the warm evenings of late, enjoying some much-needed fresh air. I’d have enjoyed some entertainment too if I’d got a Solar Insect Theatre, spotted over at Hippyshopper.

The Solar Insect Theatre is a neat little insect habitat. During the day, its solar-charged batteries get their charge, by night it uses the power to light up in a fashion appealing to moths and butterflies. It’s no prison – they can get out as easily as they got in and there’s a door on the side through which you can insert plant material or branches as you see fit.

It’s available for your garden for around £30. Want to know more? For this and all other things green, visit Hippyshopper.
