Insects play a key role in healthy ecosystems — they pollinate plants, improve soil health and serve as an crucial part of the food chain. Despite their importance, insect populations have seen a decline in recent years due to habitat loss, use of pesticides and a changing climate. Insect hotels are an easy and inexpensive way to support insects in a habitat near you. Not only do these structures provide shelter for pollinators and other insects, but building them also serves as a fun activity that raises awareness about the importance of insects and can even support STEM learning objectives.
