Insect hotel
Started by: berylh (1607) Report abuse
Evening all - friends of mine have an insect hotel in their garden. It was used last year for the first time and as spring beckons they are wondering if they have to clean it inside or if it takes care of itself with it's new visitors - any suggestions please.

Insect hotels occasionally require some maintenance as diseases or pests, such as mites, can become an issue after a few years. Some hotel builders prefer to completely change the filler materials every two years. Most pest and disease problems can be reduced by making small, disposable sections, so you can place new infill materials in the same location for insects that use the shelter year after year.

All my own words

Well done leccy. I didn't know you were an entomologist. My, we have a wide range of intellectuals on Wiggin World

I also have a theory of general relativity that I am writing at the moment.

I'll post it as soon as it is complete.

You do that, leccy. I'm sure it will be very enlightening. A lot more interesting than some of the twaddle that's posted on here
