The first HOTEL GUESTS

Whether disgusting or fascinating - they live in our insect hotel on the wild meadow. 🪲


We got to know these interesting rhinoceros beetles while building the exchange box.


They are hiding in the bark mulch. It's nice and warm, humid and dark in there.


Incidentally, a beetle larva can take up to 5 years to develop into a fully grown rhinoceros beetle. With a little luck, we were even able to discover such a larva.


So that all beetles get a protected home, they and their larvae were quartered directly in the hotel.



The rhinoceros beetle is a "specially protected" animal species in Germany due to its inclusion in the Federal Species Protection Ordinance.



(§ 1 Satz 1 i. V. m. Anlage 1 BArtSchV)
