Insect box









Remember those insect boxes I made? Well, turns out they’re of use in the garden.  My wife hates bees, but only due to a fear of being stung.  Generally I find bees tend to leave you alone if you do likewise.  Here they are happily flying too and from their nests.









I don’t know what type they are, but they seem solitary, there’s no hive.  Though there are quite a few setup in there – It’s been a bit like bee central in the garden.  I’m pleased, it’s probably the most useful thing I’ve built yet.  I’m still awaiting bats, though only on the side of a bungalow, I doubt I’ll get any.











In this shot, you can even see the little pollen sacks that get scraped off as they enter the rough bamboo
