Weta have been around for long enough to see the dinosaurs come and go and are New Zealand icons. Your kids will be freaked and fascinated by these amazing insects and you can encourage their curiosity by installing a Weta Motel in your garden. A Weta Motel is essentially a nice dry hole that weta can crawl into and be safe from predators like rats, mice, stoats, cats, birds and hedgehogs.
