At last my insect hotel is finnished.


By rogi


I have got my insect hotel finnished. It was a lot more work than I thought it would be, cutting up the branches to the right length and then drilling holes in them and then collecting small twigs etc to fill the holes up with. I hope that I have now put it in the right place and at the correct height so that it will attract load of bees and creepy crawlys…time will tell.

Hallo Rkalyan. What made me make a insect hotel?, well I have seen them here and also advertised a lot, so with bits of wood, roof felt, nails and branches, twigs etc I thought it would help the insects through winter.

Hi Ian and Cristina, thanks for the replys. @ Ian..don´worry if you don´t have te time at the moment...the insects won´t go away...and don´t make the mistake that I have made...nothing in the garden MUST be done, you have all the time in the world, I got to the stage where I said I MUST do that and must do that, I never had time to sit down and appreciate my I´m trying to think differently and if I don´t want to do anything I just sit on the patio, have a cup of coffee, read a book and watch the world go by.
