  • denise,
    lol, i know what you mean, i'm in the same boat as you. i'm hoping to be able to learn patience at some point in my life, til then, practice makes perfect ;)
  • hi denise,
    i'm no expert on the bee blocks (mine is still empty, i think i may have put it out too late in the season) but i can share with you the information that i have.
    this was my first attempt so i'm hoping to have some bees by next year this time. i keep trying to tell them i made a house for them, but they aren't seeming to understand, lol.
    the holes are supposed to be 5/16 holes drilled 4 to 10 inches deep with clean edges on untreated wood. i've read that they lay the males closer to the end and they like the holes deeper so they can house more of the larvae (not sure if this is the correct term for bees)
    i do believe i've seen a class for building the bee blocks in the past by don titmus. hopefully there will be another one soon.
  • Sounds like a very LIVELY living situation. Good luck!
    So what were you growing in your containers?
    oh, sorry my page is so lame, Im new :)
  • thanks denise. i looked at it today and i THINK there are finally a couple of bees checking it out. i can't wait for the day when i find when there's no vacancy there =)
