This is an excellent addition to any playground for studying creatures like slugs, beetles, woodlice, earwigs and spiders. Although ideally placed in a wildlife area, our Trapdoors can be sited virtually anywhere around the school, even on a hard surface if it's covered with leaves or other organic material prior to placement. Insects and other mini-beasts start to move in almost immediately and can be viewed or collected once the door is lifted.

In addition to laying Trapdoors over the earth, they can be Installed in conjunction with platforms built over water where they can provide access to submerged glass viewing tanks set into a pond or stream.
