Why Buy this product?

  • Beetle bank seed mix produces tall, tussocky grass areas ideal for nesting birds, mammals and over-wintering insects.
  • Over-wintering insects have been proven to feed on other insects that can damage crops, so it is beneficial to surrounding crops
  • This mixture is also ideal for maintaining soil structure in little used areas, and for preventing soil erosion by wind or water.
  • Plant on a raised bank measuring 3-5m wide and 0.4m high. Leave gaps no more than 25m wide at the end of each ridge (for access). Must establish in the first year of agreement. Cut to control woody growth and suckering species after 1st of August (to protect nesting invertebrates). 
  • Only use pesticides, including herbicides, to spot treat weeds. 
  • Suitable for AB3 & EF7
