Wild Bee Information


This set of pictures was taken on September 4, 2014 at 5:50 AM
The location was in the lobby of a very nice hotel in Washington DC
The "Take It!" came from my long interest in Bee's and the important role they have in our world.  To find that there is a way to make a formal home for wild bee's that is quite different from that of the common honey bee was a revelation.''  
I have often thought of becoming a custodian for a honey bee hive - but did not want to take on the project for even thought it was with out question worth while,  I just did not want to make the commitment to the maintenance required to keep such a hive endeavor up and running in a healthy manner.   
The example shown, using wild bees looks much easier to manage and I may put a house together and place it in the yard. I have some apple trees that could use their pollinating help.
Here is hoping someone will find this interesting enough to put one together and let us know their findings.
All my best,

    I say go for it. That would be cool to have one, especially if it helped produce more apples for you.

    This would be a fun project for the junior high science department at my school.

    I wonder if they would produce honey in something like that.

    The more of these people make the better. We need more bees! I saw a documentary recently about how bees are dying off all over the world.
