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).

Wood insect hotel
Comments about : Wooden Insect Hotel with Stake:
Seems to be sturdy, still snow here so unable to put out. I'd follow instructions and seal the post so it doesn't rot if you live in area with a lot of moisture in the soil
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Vacancy at the hotel
By Gardening Grandma
from Clayton, CA
I have an insect hotel in my vegetable garden (different model but same configuration). I have many different beneficial insects boarding there. I purchased this "Hotel" for my son's newly (and professionally) landscaped yard. The architectural style of this piece looks great and is a conversation starter. It is placed among the herbs, fruit trees and vegetable garden, ready to receive guests. This insect hotel is a garden "must have" as it benefits pollination as well as artistically pleasing.

Can't wait for it to get warm so I can use!

Best Bug Hotel
from Spokane WA
The insect hotel seems to be well built. We're in the middle of winter so haven't had a chance to put it outside as yet. We have a mason bee hive and love it. As gardeners, we try to do all we can to encourage good insects to inhabit our gardens.

I am setting this up in my mother's garden. She attracts a lot of butterflies and bees with her flowers so this will be a great way to keep them around and keep them safe all year round! Great idea! Love that more than one type of good bug can live here!
looks well made, attractive

Haven't put this out yet since it's too cold. Will enjoy it this coming year. Will be an attractive addition to my garden area.
