Bumble Bee Nest
Mason Bee Hive

Bee Hive Door
Do not worry about mice - a single queen can chase it away like in this (german) documentary from minute 8 - 9:I have built a bumblebee hotel a few years ago following these instructions: http://www.hummelfreund.com/basteltipps/bauanleitu... I can only recommend two things:1. Never place the nest in direct sunlight - it gets too hot inside and above 41°C the bumblebees die. Always have something around it2. Place it outside at the right time (quite early in the year) when the queens are looking for a colony.

Much thanks! I really appreciate. You for sure help me out with that with your vote. Again thank you.
Cool, I might have to get some. I couldn't resist this pun humor from your comment...here is "a round tuit" I 3d print:http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:910711
Much thanks. I really appreciate it.
I bought a few tubes before hand to start it up. By the end of the season Those 2 tubes filled all of the tubes you are seeing the pictures.
yeah they will. I was hoping to get some this year, but still have gotten around to it. I have seen wild ones around where I live, Washington state. They can be order from all sorts of places online.
Honey Bee Syrup
it's for sure a lot of fun and relaxing. I completely understand that and much thanks for voting for this. I really appreciate it.
How long does it take the mason bees to discover your tubes?
I am going to bait the hive next week if the weather breaks. All it has done is rain. If I catch some ill let you know.
I dig it. These look awesome!!!!!!!!!!
so leaf cutter bees use the tubes also? Where are they native?
I will get some pics to put up the next nice day we here and I'll see about getting a little video as well.
I use the grounds that were used to make my espresso right from the tap so to speak. used, not fresh.
Thank you. otherwise was some fun stuff to do, and can plant a lot of so many different plants/flowers in them.
Could you post some pictures of the door working? I can't figure out how it works.
Do you use espresso grounds that have been used to make coffee or fresh grounds for this?
