Additional Information

NEW & Exclusive | Beneficial Insect Hotel Stake for Nesting and Resting

  • Put out the welcome mat for pollinators and other beneficial insects
  • An eye-catching landscape accent, too
  • Mounting pole lets you "plant" it in the garden

Install this wooden shelter right in the garden to welcome pollinating butterflies and solitary bees, as well as lacewings and ladybugs that help control insect pests. It provides a vital haven for egg-laying, nesting and weathering storms. Vertical slots invite butterflies to roost. Horizontal slots attract lacewings. Tubes provide places for solitary bees to nest and lay their eggs. And holes attract ladybugs. Includes wooden mounting pole (we recommend treating pole with Eco Wood Treatment, sold separately).

  • Pole is 30" H
  • Installed height is approx. 53"

Poorly constructed

Comments about : Wooden Insect Hotel with Stake:

The house itself is held together with staples and very small nails. We weren't able to affix to post as it was extremely wobbly so ditched the post and attached to brick garage. Have always had praise for other items ordered in the past but this really disappointed.

Poor quality- be prepared to DYI fix.

By Michael

Comments about : Wooden Insect Hotel with Stake:

I liked the idea and photo. The packaging arrived open and falling apart. The pole was warped and could not use it; many of the top holes/tubes were filled with glue. The wire mesh was flimsy and broke through easily. Whole unit smelled of strong petroleum based glue even after airing out for a few days. I still like the idea and profile so have sanded and re drilled out the holes and found another way to mount the hotel. Building a DYI strong one out of cedar should be an easy project.

Disappointing

By Gardener

Comments about : Wooden Insect Hotel with Stake:

The hardware for the stake is not manufactured right and the whole thing is wobbly. I can't believe you can't get something easy like this right. Disappointing!

          Keeping sealed to spring when we will see how well it attracts a variety of insects. Looks nice; was wondering if top and sides could be spar varnish to make it last longer

          This should be a great addition to my wife's garden. The bugs are mostly beneficial to her garden and now they have a cool home to live in too.
