NIBRIQUE
All-in Insect Hotel, 2012

Nature is well made. Some insects play a positive role in the garden. They eliminate harmful species. Helping them to hibernate and survive make pesticides unnecessary. To be preserved, the good insects need help to find housing. Nibrique is designed following the insect needs. Once filled and installed in the garden Nibrique is self-sufficient and your garden will be naturally maintained. 

Top part is made of terracotta, an insulating material. It is raised of the ground to be more efficient. It just needs to be filling with branches and straw. They are safe havens for harmful insects predators like earing and ladybird.

Holes are shelters and nests for solitary bees. They allow them to continue to pollinate the garden.
