Insect hotel. An insect house or hotel, providing shelter for beneficial garden insects, such as lacewings and bees. This bug hotel comprises numerous tubes and recesses in which insects can shelter from weather and predators. 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 use of chemical insecticides can be reduced or stopped entirely. Such structures can also encourage biodiversity by providing habitat.
