- Product Info
This lovely handcrafted Insect Hotel is the perfect way to encourage a variety of bugs to enjoy your garden. It offers them shelter, a place to hibernate and nest, and encourages pest control and pollination for your flowers.
Built with solid panels of wood to the sides and base with a thinner panel to the back featuring a hole for a hook, enabling you to hang it on any garden wall or shed. The roof is covered in a layer of metal to protect it from the rain, while the thick sides keep warmth in during the colder months.
The main body of the hotel is filled with hollowed wooden tunnels, perfect for solitary bees or insects to burrow inside to make a nest. The different sizes make it appealing to a variety of species, and can be used for hibernating or feeding larvae.
The pull-out drawer to the centre is ideal for small insects to create homes in, with small holes in the front leading to sealed tunnels within the drawer. By pulling on the attached hook, you can remove the drawer and see into the nests thanks to the transparent plastic layer to the top of the drawer - perfect for curious kids learning about bugs!
At the top of the hotel is a spacious section with more small holes to the front, which is great for popping straw or plant shoots into for ladybirds and bees to build nests in and sustain them through hibernation.
For a comfortable home, hang the Insect Hotel on a south-facing wall, near a hedge or some garden plants, so there's plenty of warmth and food for the inhabitants. This little building is a great spot for a variety of species throughout the year, ideal for curious children or wildlife enthusiasts looking to encourage insects in their garden.
