The Bee hotels can be placed in a garden or balcony to create hiding places for beneficial insects, during the summer and in the winter, for hibernation. The most frequent guests are lacewings, solitary bees, bumblebees and ladybugs: all tiny, non-aggressive insects that help pollinate and increase the crop. Ladybirds also effectively eliminate aphids. The hexagon shape helps creating different environments for better adaptation.
The House collection was designed to host only one spices, through the adoption of specific features. An example can be the Bumblebee House, designed with a built-in corridor and a filling made of high-quality fleece, where a bumblebee creates its tube. The Butterfly House is characterized by two longitudinal cuts that help butterflies or moths to safely hide away and hibernate. The Bug House features bottom ventilation that ensures optimal conditions for the year-round living, and is provided with cotton pulp inside for better thermal insulation. Lastly the evergreen Birdhouse selection is meant to help little birds prepare their nest while these in return might catch a large quantities of vermin.
