Bug Hotel

We moved house recently and in the move a lot of my plant pots broke. I hate throwing things away so we painted them using normal poster paint and made them into a bug hotel.

We then tucked it away deep into a bush and every couple of weeks we explore it for insects. We have an insect magnifying viewer so that we can take a really close look at our little friends. You can buy them easily at Amazon. Click here.

NOTE: if you want the paint to last through the elements, why not try varnishing it with clear varnish.

If you’re interested in making a more complex habitat for your garden insects take a look the the BBC wildlife page. Click here.
