Hi Bellasmom

I tend to leave them where I put them, if they are not in the way and just add to them if I have any more turf, as they do begin to flatten over time. I’m guessing, long term they might work even better for beetles, etc. with some wood (twigs, etc.) between the layers (I might try that next time!). I don’t seem to see as many beetles around them if they have been left with no new layers added for a year or two. But they just add to the variety of mini-habitats.
