Hey has55, very interesting postings about bees.  Just a thought, could you have put them all under one thread?

My reasoning is that when one  does a search, all these would come up on one thread and not four?

Has55 very cool!!!....I think hubby and I will make something like this but on a smaller scale Laughing I don't know much about what kind of insects will visit the hotel.....does it depend on where you live? or is it just for bees?....we have found leaving some old limbs, logs and drift wood around in the gardens has provided living space for lady bugs and other insects Very Happy we love the idea of a hotel like what you have shared....so cool looking and would be a fun family project!

happy gardening

great question. can anyone bump them under anyone specific title? unless the group believe it would be too overwhelming. I haven't been in the forum long enough to know. but what you are saying make sense. if the moderator would like me to start it over and place them  under one title I would be glad to to it. Just need a little info to find out what works best for the forum.
Thank you.

I think camprn or sanderson would be able to do it, has55.

Family Gardening: I think the different size holes dictate what insects hibernate there over the winter.
