Caption: Bug hotel. This is a shelter for beneficial garden insects, such as lacewings and bees. It consists of numerous tubes and recesses in which insects can spend the winter, or where they can make nests. 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 can reduce the need for chemical pesticides.
