Where Do Minibeasts Live?

Minibeasts can be found in almost every part of the world... the sea, rivers, ponds, lakes, marshes, heathlands, grasslands, woodlands, hedgerows, seashores – as well as people’s gardens and buildings, and even our houses can be home to minibeasts!

Different minibeasts like to live in different places – under logs and stones, in leaf piles, in ponds, in trees, bushes and grass, or in the soil. You’re probably even sharing your house with some minibeasts, such as spiders.

The Young People's Trust for the Environment has excellent information about minibeasts Where do Minibeasts Live?.
