In this No Fuss video guide, wildlife expert Kate Bradbury shows how to make a simple bee hotel that solitary bees will nest in. Having made a small wooden house, she adds a range of hollow stems gathered from the garden, including fennel and sunflower, as well as bamboo canes, to ensure that the holes are different sizes for different species of bee. She also explains where to position the bee hotel in order to attract as many visitors as possible.
