Bee Bundle

This is a very quick way to set up a home for bees. You can use a mix of bamboo, pithy stems (such as lantana or roses) and curly bark - and secure it with wire.

Bee Rounds

Another easy project to create a home for bees. You will need to collect some trees branches that have fallen off a tree, a saw and a drill with different size bits.

Bee Mudbrick Village

These homes are perfect for the beautiful blue-banded bees. The materials you will need are any recycleable containers, some clay, a bucket and water.
