It provides them a structural habitat to live on and the raisins provide food after they've cleared the garden of nasty pests.

Eco-Ladybug House- Ladybugs are great because they eat insect pests such as aphids and scale insects that can attack your plants. Ladybugs seek shelter during cold nights and also over the winter. Provide a house for them so they'll stay in your garden! Awesome!!!!
I wouldn't pay retail for one of these as it's pretty simple to DIY - but a ladybug "feeder" is a must for a gardener who prefers a natural way to get rid of aphids, mites, and most other insect pests to the garden. If there's not enough aphids/mites/etc., for them to prey on, keep some raisins in here or a lady bug attractant to have these voracious pest-eaters around always.
The Praying Mantis is the perfect garden companion. Unlike the lovely ladybug, Mantis do not fly away, but prefer to stay within their garden homes for life. They are the safest pest control, eating many more varieties of pests than their ladybug counterparts. Many nurseries supply this gentle workers.
Ladybugs are incredible partners in the garden. They are known as beneficial pests due to the fact that they do not harm the garden but do kill and eat the pests that do!
