Build a Bee Box

beesbungalowmm_3Here’s a simple project to build a bee box to attract solitary bees. The boxes are designed as nesting sites for these busy pollinators.

If you have a garden, you want bees. And with all the problems bees have been having recently, giving them a safe, dry place to nest is the least we can do.

All you need is some lumber that is 4″ deep – some 2 x 4 scraps work fine, but no paint please. Here’s the link to the Sharon Cohoon article at Sunset Magazine.

  1. And you can plant flowers that bees like – check with your local botanical garden.
