Give The Bumble Bee Some Love

in #beekeepinglast month

This year we were really lacking honeybees around The Citystead but I noticed we did have a lot of bumble bees. So I went about trying to find ways to help keep the bumble bees happy and around the property. So after doing a bunch of research on what kind of environment bumble bees like to nest in I set out to build a bumble hive box. Now it was late in the year for nesting but I'm hoping to have some success this coming spring with getting bumble bees to inhabit my nest box.
Thanks for watching!
