Hedgehog numbers are in decline and they need help. The causes of their decline are multiple; loss of habitat, poisoning from pesticides and some makes of slug pellets and even predation by foxes. Hedgehogs are a unique mammal in the UK and need to be protected. They are also a gardeners friend consuming slugs and snails. Here at Dragonfli we always like to encourage natural pest control using nature where possible, so helping Hedgehogs is important from a conservation point of view and as a natural predator of the gardeners worst pest; slugs!

Hedgehogs like areas of long grass, wood and log piles and access under boundaries. Also make sure access to water features are not too steep to stop Hedgehogs drowning. Hedgehog houses and habitats can provide hibernation and feeding sites.

Bumblebee deliveries

Our 2017 bumblebee delivery season has begun!

Still time to order your live colony, as we are delivering though to mid-July.

If you already have Beepol Villa or Queen Beehive, you will only need to order the bees this year.

As usual, we will be pre-treating the cardboard with B401 to protect against wax moth attacks, but you will need to treat the wood on the Villa or Queen Beehive yourself.

If you have not had our bees before, then the Villa and bees will be delivered together with the bees in the spring ( May -July).

 The Villa 2017 also comes with a gift voucher for the large bumblebee colony making it a great present idea or can be pre-ordered  with a live colony for delivery this spring ( May - July)

Red Mite Season

The warmer temperatures are perfect for Red Mite ( Chicken Mite) to increase in numbers.

ANDROLIS is the name of the product for controlling red mite and northern fowl mite on all birds.

It contains predatory mites that feed on red mite. They kill all stages of the parasites from egg to adult.

Red bird mite [ Dermanyssus gallinae ] causes significant stress to infected birds and anemia, which  sometimes leads to death. Birds show signs of nervousness and even cannibalism.

Chickens/ hens  and other birds infected with Red Mite also see a drop in egg laying.

ANDROLIS is easy to use and is 100% safe to the birds, the environment and humans.
