Really, I gotta get one of those.

from what I read on the bee house, you can clean out the ones that it looks lik3 one hatched, at what point do you clean them out I don’t know. The ones that don’t hatch I imagine the bee inside died over the winter.

The bees won’t go in the cedar blocks I drilled. So in the meantime fixing it, I saw one at Vals Feed store today For $10.
i forgot to take a pic. Let’s see how long it takes to fill up, there was quite a few bees the other day.

I was going to take the one down I made, then I noticed some used it.

I just saw one finishing off the seal, but it looks more like a wasp.

Today I see a larva in one of the holes, no mud though. Some lazy bee I guess. Should I pack some mud in the front? What does it eat ?

Someone came back and sealed the larva in the hole.
it looks like the wasps like the cedar over the tubes. I’ve seen wasps flying around holding larva before, I never put that together. I thought it was a food the caught.

It so strange, I’m not sure what it used. It does look like candy.

Nice I just noticed the stuff to the right of the package, so important, bees drown so easily. Add a bit of salt.
