Solar insect theatre

Solar_insect_theatre_1The Solar Insect Theatre is a neat little insect habitat.  It powers up its solar-charged batteries by day, and by night lights up in a fashion appealing to moths, lacewings and butterflies, which can get out as easily as they got in (this is no lobster trap).  There's a door on the side through which you can insert plant material or branches as you see fit, and remove any insects graceful enough to expire for your perusal.  It must have a light sensor also since it says it shuts off by day.

Made from FSC timber.  Should be mounted 1-2 meters from the ground in a warm area with "dappled" sunlight.  (Oh, we all dream of being moths by moonlight and dappled sun.)  £29.99 from EcoTopia.
