Garden Life Wooden Insect Hotel
Provide a safe and sheltered place for insects to rest with this wooden insect hotel from Garden Life. It will keep them safe from pest-predators such as bats.
The insect hotel is designed with lots of hollow tubes for insects to nest in, with different shapes and sizes it will cater to all small bugs. The slanted metal roof not only stops rain water collecting but also provides shelter for other insects to hang underneath. Each compartment is designed with different insects in mind; the top chamber filled with soft wood is perfect for making earwigs feel at home; the sections with bamboo and hollow wood are great for bees, ladybirds and other small insects; and the thin chamber at the centre is the perfect place for lacewings or butterflies to spend time.
The overhanging roof is also perfectly shaped for butterflies to hang from to shelter from bad weather or predators.
Not only does this insect hotel offer a safe environment for insects and bugs, it also offers an educational opportunity for children. They can get an up-close view of how insects behave, they can observe nature and learn about the insects that stay at the insect hotel.

Natural Wood Characteristicts
As wood is a natural material it may be affected by the following:
Shrinkage & Warping
The timber used in the construction of your garden building will have retained some of its natural moisture content. The moisture content of the timber will vary, depending upon prevailing environmental conditions, which will result in the components either naturally expanding or contracting. As the components dry out shrinkage may occur. A good waterproofing treatment from the start is the best protection to minimise the effect of moisture loss/intake.
Damp & Mould
During the winter months, cold and damp conditions can result in an increased amount of moisture within your garden building, especially when used infrequently. Condensation can form on the timber and other items stored within your garden building. If left this moisture is likely to cause mould and mildew. To prevent the build-up of moisture, we recommend leaving the door or windows of your building open from time to time, to allow the fresh air to circulate. We also advise against storing wet or damp items in your garden building as this will also increase the level of moisture in the building. If mould or mildew does start to form within your building we recommend using an anti-mould cleaner to remove it and to prevent it spreading, which if left untreated could permanantly damage your garden building.
Splits, Cracks & Knots
Small splits and cracks in some components or holes may appear where knots shrink and fall out. This will not affect the structure of your garden building however if you wish to fill them this can be easily done using any good quality wood filler
Sap is naturally occurring in wood and may appear in some boards of your garden building. If you wish to remove the sap, we advise waiting until it is dry and then using a sharp knife to carefully remove it. If the removal of the sap causes a hole in the timber, we recommend using a good quality wood filler to fill it.
Please be aware that these are natural timber characteristics which in most cases will not impact the structure or function of the garden building, therefore are not considered as product defects (as outlined within our Terms & Conditions). If you require further advise or information please contact our friendly Customer Services Team.
