Get or build a bee hotel
About The Challenge
Bees play an important part in our enviroment. They are incredibly good at polinating our flowers and crops, meaning they can produce the seeds to spread and keep our ecosystems biodiverse.
Not all bees live in huge hives of thousands and many choose a solitary life. These bees still need to take shelter and a bee hotel is a perfect place for that.
Build Your Own
To create a 5 star hotel (for bees), you're looking to create spaces they can tuck in at night. Bamboo sticks cut to expose their hollow insides or wood with drilled holes are some perfect examples.
Buy A Hotel
If you're not great at DIY you're not out of luck. Many places sell pre-made bee hotels and all you need to do is hang them.
Placing The Bee Hotel
Just like in Monopoly, choosing a good place to put down your hotel is key. Pick somewhere head height and sunny in the morning and you're good to start receiving buzzing guests.
