The best location for your Insect Hotel
Location is important to get the maximum number of insect guests to visit your bee and bug house. It should be set up in a sheltered spot away from the prevailing wind. Solitary bees prefer a sunny spot in direct sunlight.. If you have a large flower bed, pond or hedge where there is already an abundance of wildlife you will find your hotel will fill up more quickly if sited near to these population centres.
