This Bee Hotel is a way to help our 'pollunator' bees!  We have seen a decline in the number of pollunator bee's (better known as Mason, or solitaire bee's) and this is bad on the eco-system.  If there are no pollunators, then the plants do not get the attention they need from this species.  

The Bee Hotel is designed to help Mason Bees create their nests in an environment that is not a hive or a cluster environment.  These bees do not like being in crowds.  The holes you see in the wood are different sizes.  You can hang/attach the Hotel to the side of your house or your fence at least 3 to 5 feet above ground.  Make sure they are in a sunny spot that does not get too much wind!  The Male Mason bees are not aggressive.  The Female Mason bees are sometimes aggressive - mainly protecting their territory (like most 'mamas')!

I keep these fairly smallish because they do not like large crowds.  If you want a larger one, just let me know and we can work out the details!  These hotels are definitely unique - no 2 are exactly alike!
