Description

As concern about the welfare of our bee populations grows, it is clear that action is needed, not only on a national level but also in on an individual basis, in our own back gardens. Nurturing your own insect population is of huge benefit to your garden, as well as the bees, with beneficial insects keeping pests down and encouraging plant growth and propagation.

In Bee Hotel, you’ll discover what wild bees and others need the most, and how you can provide it by building them a home. From a ‘one-hour hotel’ to a true ‘romantic retreat’, here you’ll find numerous ideas for creating insect dwellings, whether you live in a flat with a balcony, a town house with a terrace, or have a suburban or countryside garden. With step-by-step instructions, material checklists and exact dimensions for the individual parts, you can get started straight away.

The author

Dr. Melanie von Orlow is a biologist who has been involved with bees and their produce since she was a child. She is a spokesperson for the German Society for Nature Conservation and her work has already won several awards. She has written several books on beekeeping and insect protection.
