Our hotel is empty... It seems that it's about location, location, location. Our garden is a bit on the dry side with low flower and insect biodiversity. Also, I wonder if by putting it under the stoep roof it may be a bit too far from the garden...
The stoep might be better. At least it will be dry. Testing garden resources is one of our key goals!
So much excitement in our home - awaiting our bees
Excited to see how bees behave in their new home 😁
#154 ready for
Amazing. It has been a super day, so let's hope this weather persists and the pollinators start moving.
211 has 4 visitors already!
From the photo it is hard to tell you have visitors... will I know when I look at my hotel in person that something is happening? #paranoid #newbie
@Adrie Fourie this photo was from early morning when I put it up, so you won't see anything on it. But yes, you will definitely notice! It is hard to tell from pics when they start up, but once they are going it's very clear. Attach my pic from last years hotel for reference.
@Adrie Fourie visitors today. You can see little bee butts with the naked eye and pick up the movement too.
We have to wait and see. Some people are already saying they have visitors from today. Shady and dry and hopefully near the garden and you should get. Just give it time.
I will mostly use the forums to publish progress and send out weekly emails.
I encourage everyone to use this platform to post pictures and interact.
One of the participants started a little early, but their hotel is almost full with mud bees! Can't wait to see what we get!! This is going to be a bumper spring and it is amazing having so many homes for nesting bees across Jozi.
I am so worried we will not get any visitors.... which platform is the best to track all the progress everyone is making in their hotels?
