This insect hotel was made from 200-year-old oak beams, beech and oak branches of varying thickness, brushwood, reed and shell limestone slabs using traditional carpentry techniques. The numerous cavities offer excellent shelter and breeding possibilities. A real eye-catcher!

As a rule, our gardens are entirely tailored to the needs of man, e.g. recreation, meditation or design. However, it is often overlooked that a garden is a complex structure consisting of a wide variety of plants and animals. Beneficial insects in particular play an important ecological role in biological pest control. These include bumblebees, ichneumon flies, earwigs, ladybirds, wild bees or lacewings, etc. The English already recognized the value of this group of insects in the 19th century. At that time, however, special constructions were primarily used to observe wild bees. Nowadays, so-called insect hotels have become fashionable. These are offered in the most different forms and variants in the specialized trade. Suitable materials include wood, stones, clay, reeds, etc. Experienced hobbyists can also make such insect houses themselves. There are no limits to the imagination. Important for the location is a warm location and protection from driving rain and wind.

From 200-year-old oak beams, different thicknesses of beech and oak branches, brushwood, reed and shell limestone slabs, this wall house was made in traditional carpentry technique. The numerous cavities offer excellent shelter and breeding possibilities. Well visibly this is besfetigt at an old wooden wall. A real eye-catcher!
