The Pyramid Insect Hotel is one of our most sought after and visually stunning habitats available. Designed and hand built in the UK from FSC certified timber for the study of mini beasts in schools. The Pyramid features multiple different types of habitat to attract different insects.
At the top a high powered solar light attracts night insects which in turn would attract bats. There is a butterfly feeding platform which has been constructed using recycled plastic and also has several feeding pots which can be filled either with sugar water or the Wildlife World butterfly food/attractant. The next chamber has 3 built in over wintering chambers for butterfly’s and other insects to have a safe retreat over the winter period as well as being fully removable for easy inspection and maintenance.
Below is the removable solitary bee drawer with built in view tubes allows the easy inspection and monitoring of solitary bees.
At the base of the Pyramid is a litter critter area to attract smaller ground insects including millipedes, woodlice, worms and several other ground insects. The sides of the Pyramid also feature several solitary bee nesting areas as well as multiple areas for additional insects and bugs to coincide with each other creating the perfect beneficial insect habitat.
Included with the pyramid is your free key stage II solitary bee lesson plan making it a perfect addition to any school environment. The Pyramid also comes with a free pack of UK native top 10 wildflower mixes which also includes a solitary bee life cycle guide and identification guide.

Buglife is the only organisation in Europe devoted to the conservation of all invertebrates. We’re actively working to save Britain’s rarest little animals, everything from bees to beetles, worms to woodlice and jumping spiders to jellyfish.
There are more than 40,000 invertebrate species in the UK, and many of these are under threat as never before.
Invertebrates are vitally important to a healthy planet – humans and other life forms could not survive without them. The food we eat, the fish we catch, the birds we see, the flowers we smell and the hum of life we hear, simply would not exist without bugs. Invertebrates underpin life on earth and without them the world’s ecosystems would collapse.
Invertebrates are facing an extinction crisis
Today, thousands of invertebrate species are declining and many are heading towards extinction. Worldwide 150,000 species could be gone by 2050 if we do nothing.
Each invertebrate species plays a unique and important role in the web of life, but once lost, they cannot be replaced. Many invertebrates have incredible life stories yet to be told, and we literally don’t know what we are on the brink of losing.
Buglife’s aim is to halt the extinction of invertebrate species and to achieve sustainable populations of invertebrates.
We are working hard to achieve this through:
- Promoting the environmental importance of invertebrates and raising awareness about the challenges to their survival.
- Assisting in the development of legislation and policy that will ensure the conservation of invertebrates.
- Developing and disseminating knowledge about how to conserve invertebrates.
- Encouraging and supporting invertebrate conservation initiatives by other organisations in the UK, Europe and worldwide.
- Undertaking practical conservation projects that will contribute to achieving our aim.
