I got a order to prepare for an event to let our customers to build insect hotels.
An insect-hotel idea was launched with a slogan "save the buzzers - pelasta pörriäinen"
So first I had to think about what shall I put inside the hotel? This large-tubed straw grows on the wetlands, and can have special insect inside
Osmankäämiyökkönen lays it's eggs on the leafs and lets their worms to eat themself inside this plant. After the pupa boxes are ready, the insect bites it's way out. Photo: https://www.suomen-perhoset.fi/osmankaamiyokkonen/
But before the build phase can be started, you will need good plans for the insect hotel
Also the tools need to be cheap and handy
I got some nice pieces of plywood from my friend Mataku
After pilot build is nearly ready, it needs to have the internal stuff dried and cut into pieces.
After filling, it will need the zinc-coated steel net in front
