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.  

In this webinar, you’ll learn the basics of constructing your own insect hotel and tips on using an insect hotel to facilitate learning at your habitat. At the end of the webinar, we’ll invite you to build your own bug hotel and submit it to our “Best of” insect hotel challenge! 

What you’ll learn: 

  • Ideal materials for building an insect hotel and the best locations to place them 
  • How to maintain and clean an insect hotel 
  • Ways to incorporate an insect hotel into an existing habitat project 

Who should take this webinar: 

  • Conservation teams interested in including insect monitoring as a STEM activity 
  • Members of a pollinator project looking for ways to enhance their habitat 
  • Anyone who wants to learn how to provide shelter for insects 


  • Delainey Williams, Certification Manager, WHC
