Another Bee Box Q
I bought 1000 tubes for bees to live in and don't know what to do with them!
Is it better to have several modest tube villages or one huge tube city?
Would the bees prefer to have the front and back of the tubes accessible or just one end for and entrance while the other end is boxed in?
Would it be better to have the entrances fully exposed or would something like slats be an idea to keep wind and rain off?
Should the tubes be organised by tube diameter or is a jumble of diameters better?
Could I possibly attract too many bees so that they are practically a big stinging swarm even though acting independently or do they tend to potter about a bit more?
Might an actual swarm move in?
How close to the ground could the tubes be?
Direct sunlight or not?
Are solitary bees the sting and die type?
Do they tolerate other insect neighbours?
Ummmmmmmm I think that's all I can think of for now... Thanks.
