Intro: Build a Brick Bee Hotel.
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
Step 1: The Build
For this build, I didn't measure anything. I just looked for materials around my shed that looked nice when combined. The total build, including hanging it on the wall, took less than 10 minutes.
I found a nice leftover piece of multiplex and fixed the brick to it with long screws. Then I used my drillpress to drill two holes in the wood. These holes where then used to fix the bee hotel to the wall with screws.
Step 2: Hang It Up
- choose a dry spot
- choose a sunny spot
- make sure that there are enough plants and flowers, that bees like to visit, within 50m of your bee hotel.
