Insect Hotel 

This insect hotel is perfect for conservation wildlife spaces, parks & recreational settings, visitor sites, schools and other public places as well as making an impressive garden feature.

Much more attractive than a pile of old pallets, this insect lodge has the capacity to house hundreds of small insects and other invertebrates. It offers suitable and attractive habitats for solitary bees, bumblebees, butterflies and ladybirds as well as a wide range of other beneficial minibeasts such as spiders, parasitic wasps, gauze flies and earwigs. With a combination of habitats all under one roof, the insect lodge really makes a great hostel for the study of bugs!


Insect Hotel dimensions:

Height 1.29 x width 79 x depth 27cm

This product will require cementing into the ground. Ideally the positioning should be in a sunny warm spot where it might also be sheltered but not essential 

 

Design Update 2022: this item replaces CJ-921070120 and will now be supplied with Oak legs.

Siting

Place the insect hotel preferably in a sunny area, in close proximity to plants and south facing. The unit can be anchored to the ground with the posts supplied, ensuring the pole with the protective black layer is just above the ground level. This lodge is also suitable for installation into flat roofs or mounted onto a wall.

To attract and encourage the optimal number of insects to the hotel, we recommend planting 100 m² of native, nectar rich plants around the installation.

Maintenance

The Vivara Pro Corsica Insect Hotel is treated with a clear water-based substance, and treating this annually with a wildlife-friendly preservative will help maintain an optimum condition for years to come. Check the hotel annually for any general maintenance needs, and only replace the bamboo tubes if damage is observed or they become misplaced.
