Choose a sunny spot where the bee house will not be exposed to strong winds.
The bee house should face southeast preferably.
The bee house should be located at least one metre above the ground.
Its channels and openings must be situated horizontally wherever you put the house.
Bee houses mounted on buildings are often more successful than those mounted at the end of a pole.
Look for a strip of plants of different species and put the house near to it. IMPORTANT: Insecticides should not be used on these plants.
If insects have chosen to live in your bee house, dormant larvae will be in the house over the winter. It is difficult to differentiate bee larvae from other insect larvae. Observe what is flying around the bee house in the spring. If it is not bees or bumble bees, you will need to build a new bee house, which will be the perfect opportunity to review the materials you use to attract pollinators!
