2016 has seen the launch of our new Queen Bee hives in celebration of the Queen's 90th Birthday. Hand made in the UK and able to house the large hive of British native bumblebees, Bombus terrestris audax, the new Queen Bee hives are available in limited colour batches, so grab them while you can! In 2015, Dragonfli launched a new design of the Beepol Bumblebee Villa , which is the house designed for the Beepol Large hive. The new design has a copper roof, which will look fantastic in any garden. During 2014, Dragonfli launched for the first time, live solitary bees and attractive solitary bee habitats. Now we have two live pollinating insects to choose from at Dragonfli; UK native bumblebees and Solitary bees . These bees can be supported with our wide range of bee friendly plants and seeds.

When sowing or planting, one of the best ways to help young plants establish is with the addition of beneficial fungi like Mycorrhizal fungi. The new, relaunched Dragonfli range of Roots Boost pouches are specially formulated to help plants establish in standard or adverse growing conditions. Dragonfli supply granular Mycorrhiza products for use at planting and soluble versions for watering in at or after planting.
To combat insect pests in the garden , try first to establish habitats that will attract beneficial insects such as Ladybirds and Lacewings. If they are not present in large enough numbers, Dragonfli supplies a wide range of biological control and natural enemies to help combat pests naturally including a wide range of nematodes for the control of garden pests such as Vine weevil, fungus fly and Leatherjackets.
Biological control is not restricted to the control of pests on plants, we now also have biological control for red mite on chickens and hens in the form of tiny predatory mites that eat the red mites. A similar predatory mite is also available for the control of snake mite on snakes and lizards. This removes the need for using harmful and ineffective chemical treatments.
