Tunnel Nests for Native Bees

Contributed by Sabine Hilding

This is an Invertebrate Conservation Fact Sheet from the Xerxes Society about Tunnel Nests for Native Bees Nest Construction and Fact Sheet.

90% of native bees nest in tunnels in nature.  Many homeowners place constructed artificial tunnel nests in their gardens to house and attract bees. This pdf file addresses construction, placement, but especially issues of bee health within constructed nests--mites, fungal diseases etc. and how to (easily) keep bees healthy

Very informative for anyone whether they have bee 'houses' in the yard or not.
