Step 1: Materials and tools

Some wood for the roof such as plywood 
A plant pot or some wood to make one
Nails, glue or screws to hold it together
Drill 
Soil and flowers
And a saw
<p>The bees work very hard to make the honey, which is the perfect food for <br> them only to have it taken away and replaced with sugar water. So <br>wrong.</p>
<p>NEVER KEEP BEES IN APARTMENTS THAT'S BEING A BAD NEIGHBOUR SECOND SOMEONE COULD BE ALLERGIC TO BEES DO IT IN A FIELD OR A MORE CONTROLLED ENVIROMENT ONLY BESIDES YOU COULD GET A COMMUNITY ORDER TO REMOVE COMPLAINT LETTER PLEASE EXCUSE MY SPELLING AND GRAMMER</p>
<p>Unless of course everyone who lives in the apartment are beekeepers. However do be responsible and do not keep bees in an apartment.</p>
<p>This works for various species of mason bees, which are wild. They are different from domesticated honeybees. If you build it, they will come...</p>
First how do you get bees in it and I don't see any room for them to make there honey comb. Bees have to have room for making there home
<p>some bees live in holes like this. In my area, we have &quot;cutter bees&quot; who take pieces of leaf and roll them into tubes to make a house.</p>
I really like the german name for this - word by word translated it's &quot;insect hotel&quot; <br>: ) <br>Iv'e seen versions of this where people putted little pieces of straw or reed in some of the holes. I guess some sorts of insects like ready-furnished hotel rooms...
<p>That's awesome!</p><p>P.S. One of my CAPTCHA words was &quot;insects&quot;</p>
It's for Mason Bees
what kind of bees would live in that ?
It's for solitary bees
