Create a habitat

In conjunction with PTES and support from B&Q, we at Royal Holloway, University of London developed a monitor-able habitat for stag beetle larvae.

The Bury Buckets for Beetles (BB4B) Scheme is now in its 8th year and, so far, has resulted in the creation of over 1,000 new habitats for stag beetles in gardens and school grounds across the entire of the United Kingdom. To date, over 25% of these buckets have been reported to contain stag beetles.

Further information on the BB4B Scheme, including how to participate, can be found on the PTES website.
