Home Sweet Home!

My Weekly Special - - The Complete Guide To Honey -

Al­though a lot of our bee friends are from a hive, some of them are look­ing for a place to call home in our gar­dens, and these bees of­ten need our help. Nest­ing colony bees will be look­ing for a nice dr y, dark and safe spot, like un­der a shed or in a com­post heap. Some will nest in grass, in the trees, or in un­used bird boxes. If you find some tiny piles of dir t in patches of soil in your gar­den, this could be a sign that ground nest­ing queens are in res­i­dence – or look­ing to be.

To be a real bee buddy, why not make a few nest­ing spots in the gar­den? Some hol­low reeds bound to­gether, blocked at one end and placed in a rain­proof spot will do the job ver y nicely!
