gratis patience We put up a little Insect House box a couple of months ago and it is now seeing some action. Spiders are hiding between the canes and the bees love it.
The leaf cutter bees appear to really like the cut bamboo canes
They bask in the sun on top
And build their nest in them too
Other bees are using it as well, such as this Wool Carder Bee.
Not sure if it’s defending the territory or building the nest, but either way it doesn’t look happy.
