In times of ever-dwindling natural habitats, these "hotels" offer a protected shelter to various insect species.
"Bees, wild bees and insects are immensely important for the pollination of flowers and crops. That's why insect hotels are a contribution to nature conservation that should not be underestimated", says Constanze Compes, Marketing Director of the Schmersal Group. "Taking responsibility for the earth is a key corporate value of the Schmersal Group, which is actively practiced here."
In the spring of this year Schmersal has settled a bee colony on the roof of the head office, which is supervised by an employee who is a hobby beekeeper.
