Designer Boleslav Daska ofDILNA HAMMER, creates a variety of little bee, butterfly and insect friendly hotels for gardens.
The Bee Hotel takes on a hexagonal shape similar to the shape of a honeycomb and creates many hiding places for non-aggressive insects like solitary bees and ladybugs.
The BumbleBee House has been designed specifically forbumblebees as it has a built-in hallway that leads to an interior filled with wool where the bee can create its home.
The Butterfly House has two slots that allows butterflies and moths to enter and find respite out of the elements. Inside, there’s a couple of wood pieces placed at the back of the house that allow them to rest.
The final design is the Beetle Shelter that serves as a refuge for a wide variety of small insects. The shelter is filled withcotton pulp to create a warm interior and it can be used as a starting material for the shelter of its first visitors.
