Solitary or wild bees live on theire own and like to build their nests in holes in trees, walls,etc... so if you want them to live in your garden, you can provide them with these ideal homes yourself by building a bee hotel. It can be anything from a block of wood with holes drilled in it to a stack of small bamboo tubes.
While cleaning up in the garden this afternoon, I came across and old brick. I did strike me immediately that I could use it to build a bee hotel.
I looked in my shed for other materials and found what I needed:
- a small piece of multiplex
- some screws
