I took delivery of a nest box full of tree bees yesterday. Rescued from somewhere they weren't loved. 

They seem to be settling in nicely

    I'm sure they'll be very happy with you Nut image

    Our neighbour had two nests in his roof last year - no problem for him and good pollination for our plants image

    WE nailed them to the same tree as last year. We're already buzzing but can accommodate more yetimage

    Hi, loads of bees in my garden, they are so fascinating.

    I don't use any pesticides, sorry correction, I was so fed up with lilliy beetle, I have resorted to using something for them.

    saw my first 4 spotted ladybird, not sure if it was harelequinn,
