Turn your garden into a mini wildlife haven with this sturdy, weather resistant bug hotel from Andrew James.
Whilst some people may screw their nose up at ‘creepy crawlies’ they actually have a number of benefits for your garden. Ladybirds and Lacewings are ferocious hunters whose favourite prey is greenfly and other aphids. Your hotel may also attract small Ichneumon wasps whose young feed on caterpillars that can destroy vegetable crops. With such natural pest control in your garden you won’t need to rely so much on un-natural chemicals or artificial traps.
The small bamboo canes at the top of the hotel make the perfect home for solitary bees. They will fly between the flowers in your garden and facilitate pollination, particularly useful if you are a fruit grower. These little bees are very docile so you don’t need to worry about stings.
Your bug hotel will soon become a favourite and fascinating feature in the garden. Children will love to see all the different species and types of insects the hotel attracts and this enthusiasm is often felt by adults. If you can, hang your hotel in a sunny, south facing spot near to vegetation and flowering plants. Fill the lower section of the hotel with a mix of straw, pine cones and needles, bark chippings and small twigs to create lots of little nooks and crannies for the visiting insects to crawl in to.
Dimensions: Base to Apex, 28cm, 14cm width.
