Protecting and Providing Nesting for Native Bees and Wasps
There are products on the market to provide cheap, renewable bee hotels for our native bees and wasps.
Here are a few things to help your bees be at home.
- Leave open ground (no mulch) with sandy soil for ground
- Keep a wood pile where borers can nest
- Protect ground dwellings with chicken wire.
I leave open ground for ground dwelling bees, and now after a longer than I’d like battle with vermin, I also have holes for said bees to find.
