I saw my first butterfly enjoying a ripened banana I had placed in my Biome. What a thrill he/she had stopped by for a snack and a little R & R. This is a great Grommet gift and I am tickled to play a role in the delightful life of a butterfly!More > < Less

About Wildlife World

Air Bee ‘n Bee

Put a hotel—or two—in your yard. Attract beneficial insects and animals into your local ecology with these beautifully designed habitat houses.

The folks at Wildlife World put a lot of thought and care into their designs, testing out everything from their bat boxes to butterfly habitats on a 35-acre farm in the UK. Each one is sustainably built, with timber that’s FSC certified and sourced from well-managed forests and other elements (like plastic or metal) that’s recycled.

Each little habitat doesn’t just look adorable, it also suits the needs of its guests while helping out your surroundings. Bees and butterflies pollinate, which helps keep your garden lush; while bats and frogs ward off pests.

Besides all those benefits, these critter homes are filled with learning opportunities, too. Scientific concepts like “pollination” and “the food chain” are way less abstract when you can see them come to life and point them out in nature . . . better yet, in your own yard.
