We have had this bee hotel for a couple of years but nothing ever used it apart from the odd spider.
I decided to change its position so that it now has full sun and is on our pump house. now there are about 6 or 7 solitary bees using it. they are quite comical and will poke their heads out if you get too close.



so if you have a sheltered sunny spot that maybe needs a bit of life putting back into it, why not get a bee hotel to put up. Bees are in decline and I think they need all the help they can get!

Great idea Laura, we all need bees to thrive for the good of our gardens and crops.

You can get them from garden centres, Amazon, eBay, National Trust places or RSPB places. There are usually a few types available.

Hope you don’t get stung as that’s game over for a bee. Just bee-careful when your sorting the roof.

Bees 1 Dixons 0 they went potty when we got anywhere near the nest so we have put the polycarb in place but not secured cos that would have meant getting stung so they live till August

Good to see Laura. Was stood next to the blue bush in our front garden and it was humming there were hundreds of bees all collecting pollen.
