Building a Bug Hotel

Report Copyright Infringement View in OSM UK View in OSM NZ


Our gardens and woods are home to many species of living creatures. Some insects and bugs are declining in numbers so by providing homes we can contribute to their conservation


branches, sticks, leaves, moss etc


All the instructions are on the attached file courtesy of the Wildlife Trust. The bug hotels can be built by colonies, lodges or sixes.
