About

Our gardens are home to a huge range of living creatures. They play a very important role in the garden: eating pests, pollinating plants, contributing to the ecosystem and attracting other wildlife like birds. But their s are dropping around the world, thanks to pesticide use and the loss of their natural habitats. After all, they help us out! These structures replicate the natural habitats of insects, providing space to create a nest over the summer. Then during winter, many species hibernate in the hotel, emerging in spring ready to help out in the garden!

Complete guide to making an insect hotel

A bug hotel is part garden art and part winter habitat for beneficial insectsthe garden army that helps to keep the bad bugs under control. If you are an organic gardener like me, then you will want to be sure that there is a place in your garden for beneficial insects to lodge for the winter. Next spring, when they wake up, lay eggs, and sweep your plants clean of aphids and mites, you will thank me. Here is how to make a beneficial bug house for this weekend project. Setting up different protected Insect hotel materials in your bug hostel will let the bugs find a room that suits them and prepare it as they wish.

They will dig a little hole in the soil for winter hibernation and you may see some groggy bumblebees when you are out digging in early spring if you wake them too early.

Solitary bees, however, like to nest in hollow stems for the winter. Contrary to their title, they will often pack a of bees in a stem before closing off the opening with some mud and then having a good snooze until spring. Ladybugs like to overwinter as large groups in between dry plant material. Some twigs packed together give the ladybugs plenty of room to squeeze in and wait for warmer days and eating aphids. about attracting ladybugs as garden helpers in this post:.

Many other insects will have all sorts of different nesting needs.

Some may even eat their neighbors. Arrange plant materials within the structure, packed tightly so it will stay put, but with lots of available crevices for the bugs. Affix hanging hardware and hang in an area of the garden that is close to where you want the bugs next season. I chose to hang the bug hotel on my fence near the garden so the insects will emerge next spring near the plants.
