The Bee Hotel - Rooms are Filling Fast!

In 2013, I shared a post about some native bee nesting boxes that I constructed for my yard.  Installing bee nesting boxes is a great way to increase the number of pollinators in your yard or garden.

Two years later, one of the boxes is seeing heavy use by both mason and leafcutter bees (as well as several varieties of wasps).
