Offering many different-style rooms, including the Dark Bark Snug, Pine Needle Den and Cone Zone, the Nine Room Insect Hotel is designed to be suitable for all garden insect species. The multi-use habitat also offers drilled cane nesting tubes for solitary bees, and mini logs with drilled hiding holes for smaller insects to offer a predator-safe habitat. RRP is £22.49.
The hotel’s lower levels are protected by a wildlife-friendly wired mesh which can be removed and replaced to allow gardeners to access the rooms. Gardeners can personalise the loose-filled hotel rooms with natural garden objects such as cut straw, hay, twigs or leaves.
Wildlife World managing director Norman Sellars said: "This Nine Room Insect Hotel is one of our latest additions and quite possibly one of the finest. Its ability to invite and accommodate a wide range of beneficial insects into gardens is a great advantage to gardeners and wildlife enthusiasts. With this attractive hotel, we are sure that people will see more visitors to their gardens and this is not only a great way to encourage this but also makes a delightful addition to gardens of any size or design."
The hotel, which stands about one foot tall, can either be hung against a flat surface, such as a sheltered wall or fence, using the two hanging hooks, or it may be positioned on a flat surface, for example a wall-top or window ledge. T
