A bee hotel, also known as a bee house or a solitary bee house, is a man-made structure designed to provide nesting sites for wild solitary bee species.
It typically consists of either piece of wood with varied number of holes drilled into it, or a wooden or bamboo box or tube filled with a variety of natural materials such as bamboo stems, hollow twigs, or reeds.
These materials mimic the hollow stems and tunnels that wild bees would naturally use for nesting.
Bee hotels are often placed in gardens, patiots or other natural areas to provide a safe and suitable habitat for wild bees and other pollinators.
They also help to boost the local bee population, which is beneficial for the environment and for pollinating plants.
