Did you know that we need bees to help with pollination so that we can enjoy fresh fruits & vegetables? Unfortunately, these little helpers are on the endangered species list. They have lost much of their natural habitat over the past 60 years and they’re under assault from pesticides and intensive farming.
This is why we would like to help them by offering a small place to stay safe. Perfect for solitary pollinators. It’s very easy to make and it has big impact for the bees and the preservation of the earth. Are you ready to receive these special guests in your garden or balcony? Here’s how to create your own bee hotel.
What do you need
- Empty natur. bottle
- Cardboard paper
- String or twine
- Natural glue
How to create
- Cut off the top part of the natur. bottle with a knife or sharp scissors. Be careful!
- Measure the height of the remaining part of the bottle and draw some rectangles with the same height on the cardboard paper and cut them out. They don’t have to be perfect.
- Roll each rectangle around your pencil to create a straw and secure at the midpoint with a tiny bit of natural glue. Change diameters to get a fun effect.
- Collect the straws in the bottle until it its completely full.
- Pick a nice and natural type of string or twine to hang your bee house with.
- Look for a nice and sunny spot in your garden or on your balcony to hang your little bee guesthouse on and wait for the little helpers to arrive.
Save the bees and inspire your neighbours and friends to contribute and give back to nature. You’ll see this little bee hotel creates awareness with your loved ones.
