Air Bee & Bee
Just outside the butterfly pavilion at the Desert Botanical Garden is a series of "bug houses" for us to admire before we enter the pavilion.
This one is called the Buzz Inn, an air bee & bee.
The use of pesticides to control the "bad" bugs has killed more than it originally intended and the bugs that keep our ecosystem healthy have been suffering. Many gardens around the world have taken to making safe havens for the bugs that are so important to our plant life.
So just like those little "free libraries" that are popping up everywhere, don't be surprised if you start seeing these attractive little bug "hotels" around town too.
