These colorful insect abodes add a touch of color to one's backyard, encouraging home owners to take action in the preservation of vulnerable ecosystems.

'Insect hotels' are a collection of bug-friendly spaces which serve as comfortable hiding places for bees, butterflies and ladybugs. The bee-specific hotel can be affixed to a tree, forming the shape of a honeycomb, with embedded passageways and a comfortable wool lining for the non-aggressive insects to call home. The Butterfly House has two slots that allow the thin creatures to slip inside, while keeping larger creatures out. The beetle shelter, serves as home to a variety of small, co-existing insects. Filled with a cotton pulp interior, this shelter offers the bugs a warm, and welcoming environment.
