Building Insect Hotels

Provide shelter and protect from predators

Many wild bee species are threatened with extinction today due to industrial agriculture and destruction of natural habitats. At the same time, about 150 different crops and around 80 per cent of wild plants in Europe depend on pollination by insects. By providing the right habitats we can greatly increase the number of beneficial insects in our gardens.It is crucial that the right materials are used for nesting aids. These must be as close as possible to the nesting structures of the wild bees' natural habitats. In addition, the location should be as dry and sunny as possible.
