This is a small beehive I made to be used as a lure for a much larger one. It has a flower pot on the front and a small water pond on the side. The flower pot is there as bees like flowers and the water pond as they need to be near a water source.

Do you want to help out the bees but don't want to built a beehive then check out-

Step 1: What you will need

A saw
Something to hold it together e.g nails, screws 
Some wood
Hot glue gun and glue sticks
And a bee colony ( or you could attract one like I am doing )

any bees?
nathan nash (author)  unlearny2 years ago
still none, I need something to attract them.
Good to see someone your age trying to help out the bees!! Without them we don't have food. You might have to put your hive a bit higher up if your trying to attract wild bees,they like to be up out of reach of animals. GOOD LUCK ,hope you get some bees to move in !!

Thanks it's about 75cm above the ground, is that enough?
Depends on the type of bee, some like several meters. BUT don't risk a fall !!!
A quick check on Google shows heights from 1 meter to 7 meters depending on the area & type of bees. Maybe you can look up the wild bees where you live to get an answer. Best to get a pole the right height & mount the house on it & not climb up somewhere to mount it. CHEERS!
