Build Your Own 'Insect Hotel'

 

Build your own insect box with an 'Insect Hotel' kit.  The kit contains all the materials to make the box, and is easy to assemble with all the panels cut to size and pre-drilled holes so minimal tools are required.  Please note the kit does not include the contents of the box, it is up to you to go and find and collect your own choice of natural materials, such as bark, twigs, moss, leaves or pine cones, to fill the box and make a home for the insects in your garden.

The 'Simple'

The 'Simple' Bat Box is, as the name suggests,  a straightforward design featuring a single roosting chamber.  As with all our kits, all the pieces are cut to size with pre-drilled holes to make it easy to assemble with minimal tools required.

Important Note – Whilst all the kits are designed to be easy to assemble are suitable for a family activity, assembly of the kits and use of hand tools should be carried out with care, and children and vulnerable individuals should be subject to appropriate adult supervision.  The kits are made of rough sawn timber so care should be taken to avoid wood splinters.
