BUG HOTEL

Gardens need insects to keep healthy, and building a Bug Hotel is a great way to provide a secure fun place for bugs to live.

MATERIALS:

A collection of different shaped objects for example:

  • Cardboard rolls
  • Old bricks
  • Wood
  • Bark
  • Old pot plant containers

Wood or bricks to make the structure, I have used an old wooden crate.

INSTRUCTIONS:

Make your structure first, then build it up with your different objects. 

See how long it takes for the first guests to arrive!
