PLANET PALA: DIY – HOW TO BUILD AN INSECT HOTEL

HOW TO BUILD AN INSECT HOTEL

We need pollinators & they need us! Pollinators help our ecosystems by protecting our food sources, increasing wildlife resiliency, and protecting us from climate change impacts. They help move pollen around to new plants.

INSECT HOTELS
Increase your pollinators by putting one of these in your yard & watch who moves in. Make it yourself, or buy one.

PALA’S POLLINATORS
• Native Bees (usually non-stinging)
• Butterflies & Moths
• Ladybugs & Lacewings
• Hummingbirds
• Beetles & Flies
• Bats & Birds

BENEFITS OF POLLINATORS
• 75% of our food crops rely on pollinators!
• Pollinators help plants, & plants help pollinators
• Increase the resiliency of our ecosystems
• Bees visit 5 million flowers to make 1 pint of honey
• Some bugs eat others that are crop pests
• They support biodiversity & help ↓ climate impacts
