Verulab Bug Hotel, open for business!

Verulam School St albans Hertfordshire

This week at Verulab ECCO club, the Year 7 and 8 scientists have been busy putting together a bug hotel with the help of Miss Howells, Mr Ellis, Mrs Furse, Mr Knowles and Mr Andrews.

This project looks at providing a new space for insects to inhabit as part of our project to increase our bee, butterfly and bug populations. This will also provide the boys with an area to study the wide variety of bugs that live in the area.

The hotel was created from recycled materials, including pallets, bricks, leaves and old roof tiles. A very big well done for all the boys that helped create this bug haven!

Future Verulab projects include introducing lavender and other bee friendly plants in the area, clearing of the pond to study the ecosystems that live there, and building a scarecrow.
