Give Insects A Home - How To Build A Bug Hotel

Hello!  Did you know that you can help to give nature a home?  By building an insect 'hotel' you can help those so important little insects and animals to survive in your backyard.

“If all the insects were to disappear from the earth, within 50 years all life on earth would end. If all human beings disappeared from the earth, within 50 years all forms of life would flourish.” -Jonas Salk

Also building a bug hotel is a great way to recycle any of your 'waste' materials that are lying around in your place.

You only need to pile up some different materials that you may have in your place and then make a roof to keep rain away.  Or if you want something fancy, you can build a frame first and then fill it up with different materials.

Found these two great videos on bug hotels. The first one is about how to build a bug hotel from RSVBvideo and second one is about the success of a bug hotel from Calastein .

Hope you enjoy these videos and find them helpful!  Let us know what you think in the comment box below.
