Buzz In

Provide a home to pollinators and pest controllers by sheltering nature's little do-gooders in this sweet bug house. Stacks of pine, plywood, and bamboo tubes become makeshift homes for special bugs whose natural behaviors benefit humans. Solitary bees, for instance, are excellent pollinators but have no hive to buzz back to, so they're less aggressive than the honey bee and they rarely sting. Ladybugs will hibernate here in the winter, and fly out during the spring and summer to feast on pests that wreak havoc on your plants. And while they make look threatening, earwigs are also welcome here since they use their distinctive pincers to rid your garden of destructive aphids. Plus, the slats at the motel's center are just the right size for lovely butterflies and lacewings to flutter in and out as they please. Made in China.

Made from
metal, pine wood, plywood, bamboo
Measurements
13" L x 6" W x 7" H

        • Year Round

        Comments about UncommonGoods Bug Motel:

        This was a gift to be used in a small back yard box garden in San Fransico. The construction and paint finish makes the Bug Motel a very durable product to withstand the elements. It was the perfect gift to open in a group of 30 year olds that have gardens or have majored in entomology. Now everybody wants one.
