Bee Aware Native Bee SeminarWhat does a bee hotel look like? The bee hotel will be a lot like the one Megan is holding here, this one displayed at the exceptionally well attended native bee seminar in Leura.

 

Made from drilled hardwood and hollow plant stems, the bee hotel has spaces to suit Resin, Leafcutter, Reed and Masked bees. Megan will also place three rammed-earth blocks, particularly for Blue banded bees who prefer to drill their own homes.

Megan and Michael will be available to answer any questions you may have. Megan will bring everything we need to collect and study bees

No need to RSVP, just come along. And if you know anyone with an interest in native bees please invite them too.
