yes, its under my garage, the bees are going in and out day collecting pollen from the plants and making honey, the problem is, I'll need to dig up my garage floor ( concrete) to get at it, So I won't be bothering,

busy as bees

I have three. I built some for them, but they decided to go under the patio, and others in the loft. They have lots of bee baths scattered around the garden. I like Bees.

Last Friday, as I opened my Pajero rear door (first time since January) a dozen wasps attacked me, stinging me on my eye and behind my ear.
God, the one on my eye hurt. My jaw started to seize up on the left side, the bugger must've give me a large dose of ! Rolling Eyes

After a good squirting with mosquito killer, they gave up.

I've been trying to lure a swarm to the White House. I've had it bated with lemongrass oil and sugar syrup but haven't seen many bees in the garden this year. This is a learning year anyway. I figured if I could lure something then I'd gear up to try to keep them alive over winter. I guess I'll have to break down and buy some next spring.

I have a few Hebe Salicifolia plants dotted about the garden, easy to grow (Full(ish) sun) is all. Bees are conerving it, I also have one butterfly bush that crawls with bees and butterflies. I cut that back to the greound every year so it doesn't take over.

If you see a Hebe Salicifolia, snap a bit off and stick it in a pot. Never fails to grow.

I have a bag of sugar in the house for that very reason. Put some on a spoon, mix with water and pour it in front of the bee, it will drink it and fly away a happy bee. Never give it Honey

If it's walking about, it's fine. Pour more sugar water near it and leave it. It will live, or it won't.
