Caption: 'Winter shelter for beneficial garden insects, such as lacewings and bees. This ''bug hotel'' comprises numerous tubes and recesses in which insects can spend the winter. The insects it is designed to house are those that are either predators of garden pests, like lacewings, or those that pollinate flowers, like bees. Using insects to help keep a garden free of pests means that less or no chemical insecticides need to be used.'.
