Solitary Bees

Yesterday I kept my Yard Man busy with a lot of household projects including making a nesting area for solitary bees. I think most people know that honey bees are suffering from some kind of disease that isn’t fully understood. If you can’t help with a hive, you can foster the solitaries, who are also great pollinators. Lisa Mahnke, a local landscape designer at Dry Ideas was the source of inspiration. If you have some wood, a drill and some nails, you can help the bees! Ours aren’t as fabulous as Lisa’s, but it gives the neighbors something to wonder about
