New Bug Hotel for the Memorial Gardens

January 19, 2024

On Wednesday morning, we installed our latest bug hotel. A very different design to the existing hotels, and a fantastic addition to the tea hut wall in the Memorial Gardens.

Huge thanks to Colin Pells, who worked in partnership with the Town Council to create this shelter for insects and invertebrates.

Bug hotels are of great importance in maintaining local ecosystems. With the ongoing urbanisation natural habitats are diminishing, making it difficult for insects and invertebrates to find suitable places for nesting and shelter.

By constructing bug hotels, you can actively participate in the preservation of beneficial insects that are crucial for pollination, natural pest control, and nutrient recycling.

These small creatures, really are the unsung heroes of nature, tirelessly working to sustain our ecosystems.
