Anything we can do to help the pollinator bees is a good thing. I have not seen a single honey bee this year at all. Lots of bumble bees early in the season, but not lately. Lots of wasps, but they don’t really pollinate much.

Great idea of yours.

That’s cool, are the tubes on the bottom stick that are drilled out or did you turn them from the pallet wood on a lathe?

Very nicely done and pretty as well! I’ve actually just seen someone lacking boxes with seeds for the birds in the same way. He’s trying to get hummingbirds into his yard. Bees and bugs are obviously a good option too, but for me, people in my family are kinda freaked out by the insect variety of pollinaters, so as pretty as the little house here is, I’m going to have to pass! Sorry!

I’ll be making some Bee Houses this year myself for the Bees. Having a Garden will give them plenty of food over the late spring, early summer and maybe even early to late fall.
