Did you know that there are fewer and fewer insects flying around our gardens? Bees, butterflies and bumblebees are having a hard time. And it is precisely these insects that play an important role in our ecosystem. Bees pollinate the flowers, for example. If the flowers are not pollinated, the harvest will be poor or not there at all. This endangers both our and the animals' food supply. Bumblebees also bring pollen from one flower to another, which is why they also pollinate flowers. Butterflies are an important link in the food chain. Birds mainly feed their young with caterpillars in spring and did you know that bats have a diet that consists largely of moths?
Our insect hotel offers shelter to a number of useful insects. And that is exactly the reason why everybody wants an insect hotel in the garden! It attracts the animals that help you to keep nature in balance. Our hotels offer protection and housing to green lacewings, ladybirds and earwigs. The various sizes of the hollow straws attract different species of bees. The roof of the hotel provides a dry house, which is nice because bees like to nest in dry places!
