With an insect hotel, you make a valuable contribution to biodiversity. As pollinators, the small beneficial organisms provide an immensely important service for the animal and plant environment. Whole ecosystems are kept intact by insects. In addition, pollination by insects has been shown to have a greater effect than fertilisers for the cultivation of crop plants. However, the number of insects has rapidly declined due to urbanisation and the associated reduction in natural habitats, but also due to the excessive use of pesticides in agriculture.
If you want to buy an insect hotel online, you are at the right place at Maxi Zoo. In our online shop you will find a large selection of nesting aids that offer the beneficial creatures sufficient protection from wind and weather. In addition, our insect hotels are also ecologically sustainable in terms of their production since they are usually made of FSC certified wood. The nesting places are also made of other natural materials such as pine cones. The separate chambers of the insect hotels are individually designed so that the different preferences of the insects are taken into account equally. Many different insects, such as wild bees, ladybirds and lacewings, will seek refuge in your garden and ensure a truly pleasing natural spectacle. Chambers filled with distinctive and hollow stems are preferred habitats for bees.
To ensure that the insect hotel is particularly well received by the little insects in your area, some tricks are helpful. The location in which you attach the nesting device is particularly important: it should offer protection from wind and rain, while also being shaded from the sun. Make sure that there are shrubs, trees, flower-rich wild plants or herbs in the immediate vicinity. Insects feel particularly comfortable in these places, as they also find sources of food here.
