It's easiest to leave them on. It makes the bed heavier than it would be if you cut them off. But it shouldn't matter too much either way.

I edited the step about materials and added a link to a pallet safety guide. Thanks again for the helpful comment!
Great point! I'll edit now.
Wow! That's amazing. :) Kinda makes you think though: Perhaps an insect hotel should be called "an ecology" hotel. Even if the squirrels eat some of the bugs, that's all part of the local ecology.
I'll check next time I'm at the Makerspace. From what I've seen, different materials are suitable for different bugs. The stumps with holes drilled are frequented by various hive-less bees and such, and I think beatles like the straw, etc. Perhaps I'll add some pics when I find out what bugs move in.
Thanks, glad you like it.
Thanks. :) Try it out some time if you like, and send me pictures.
Hey Gary - can you link me to good resources describing what sort of materials are best for attracting beneficial bugs? Or perhaps bugs that need the most help? We're in Jutland, Denmark, so the climate is a bit different from the states. But I think the goal with bug hotels is to help bugs of all or most sorts, since populations are in steep decline worldwide.
