I have a birdbox that bees have taken over
Hi! We love Bee's what's not to love, with out them the human species could be doomed, or even have to work very hard pollinating fruit and other plants by hand, so look after your Bee population for a brighter world, and think of all that Honey.

Going to give this a try with bamboo canes, is it best to keep the hotel away from bird feeders?
We had blue tits setting up in our nest box last year then they got shooed of by great tits then bees shooed them away. The bees were no trouble; they investigated when the compost bin lid hit against the shed which shook the bird box but by September they'd all left. When we cleaned out the bird box this year there was a bees nest siting above the nest that the blue tits originally built. Looks like the same might happen this year - the blue tits were there but now we have great tits popping in instead!
I use the wooden stumps from spent Christmas trees and just drill 8-10mm wide 40mm deep holes in them. Hey presto! A bee hotel
