If you are a concerned gardener who is looking for ways to make your garden friendlier towards beneficial insects, then the Neudorff Handmade Insect Hotel could be just the thing. In addition to insect friendly plants, species such as butterflies, ladybirds and lacewings also need places to shelter at night and over winter. They will seek out brickwork, log stores and piles of stone, but in a garden without these resources, an Insect Hotel will provide them with a home, and this large Neudorff model is the Ritz amongst all insect hotels.
Being handmade, each Insect Hotel is completely unique and is produced entirely from natural materials, and wood that is free from preservatives. Each one incorporates different areas or ?rooms? to encourage a variety of species - Ladybirds will nest in the dense materials in the roof of the hotel while the wild Mason Bee prefers the hollowed out tubes of wood to lay its? eggs. Loosely stacked pine cones are held behind wire and are perfect for attracting green lacewings and also ladybirds.
Sited in a sunny, sheltered spot, protected from strong wind and rain, and close to plants that can provide a source of food, the Neudorff Insect Hotel will make an attractive and fully functional addition to any garden and really is a stunning piece of artisan craftwork.
