Why actually insect hotels?
Insects have a hard time in today's world. They find fewer and fewer opportunities for a species-appropriate life and there are many reasons for this:
- Colonization of green areas
- Pest control with strong chemical means
- Use of monocultures
- Use of areas that were previously nature
The list could go on and on. It is therefore all the more important that as many people as possible provide insects with an alternative and new habitat. Here, insect hotels and seeds can be a very good option.
Detailed and well thought-out - our insect hotels
The versatility in insect hotels makes the special shelters a real eye-catcher. We at Beekeeping Professional like to provide optimal dwellings for insects. For this reason, we have included the category in our range and thought about which products are ideal for you.
It does not always have to be the largest version. Often it is enough to put a box for wild bees and bumblebees or other insects, or choose a duo box. In duo-boxes, the equipment is designed primarily for the needs of certain species of insects, such as bees, bumblebees or butterflies.
We are aware that not everywhere you can find a place for the large insect hotel, where spiders, bees, beetles and butterflies can live side by side. However, even the smallest opportunity for new habitat is a step in the right direction.
The subdivision in insect hotels
It is interesting to note that insect hotels are divided into different rooms. Each room has different features and thus appeals to different inhabitants. Did you actually know how many insects actually use these offerings? In well-equipped insect hotels can be found:
- Wild bees
- Ground beetles
Which insects actually settle depends on the place of installation and equipment. Under a roof you can find pine cones and wood chips, stones and tree slices. Gradually, you can see how each space is occupied.
When choosing your insect hotel, make sure that the models are made of natural materials. We offer only natural-based products in our online store.
Tip: You would like to let wild bees and butterflies move in? Place the insect hotel as close as possible to a wildflower meadow and make sure that there are protected cavities for the butterflies.
What are seeds and what do I need them for?
If you are already active in beekeeping, you probably know that it is becoming increasingly difficult to find suitable areas for bees. Wildflower meadows have to give way to fields with monoculture. Pesticides ensure that the bees die. Seeds from our online store are designed to be able to create new foundations for the bees again, even with little effort. Due to the simple handling they can be used in the garden or even directly in the city.
For example, we rely on the so-called seed balls. The seed here is already pressed with soil in the form of a ball and can also simply be thrown onto the meadow. Here you can choose from different mixtures. However, all seeds have in common that they contain seeds for real bee plants.
It may be quietly really colorful
Bees appreciate a large selection for their buffet and like to stay on meadows that have variety to offer. For this very reason, our seeds are very suitable. You don't have to go through the trouble of buying and mixing multiple flower seeds or bulbs. Instead, just put the seed balls in the ground and you're good to go.
We at Beekeeping Professional think that this is a very nice employment idea in the spring. Even children already have a lot of fun distributing the seeds. In addition, the balls make a good gift. Instead of a bouquet of flowers, which will be disposed of after a few days, you can give away the basis for a beautiful flower meadow or small accents in the bed.
