How lovely!
Whereabouts have you placed them? Must be somewhere they like with such a good take up.

Congratulations Amy! I hope it's a sign of a rebound in the bee population.

Thank you all ,I must say I was excited to see so many Bees zooming in , Anget I have this box on a fence in full sun ,I have another box in the shade which hasn't attracted any Bees I'm guessing they prefer to be in the sun...

Kate there was a little bit about them on Farming news this morning apparently there's a parasitic wasp that behaves like a cuckoo it goes into the tubes laying its own eggs with the bees eggs they then kill the bees eggs , I hope they don't find my box ...

Oh that sounds pretty horrific! I will be keeping fingers and toes crossed this definitely doesn’t happen with your bee box. You’re doing a fabulous job for the bee population. Just hearing them evokes summer!
