How to make a beetle bump

Boost the biodiversity in your garden, by creating a habitat for detritivores.

A beetle bump is a collection of decomposing waste including logs, wood chippings and leaves. It makes the perfect habitat for detritivores, such as earthworms and woodlice. Nature’s recyclers, detritivores attract those further up the food chain, from beetles and centipedes, to hedgehogs, amphibians and birds. Many of these species also eat slugs and snails.
