Make a simple Bee Hotel

by Kinsale Tidy Towns : Monday 28 February 2022


What you'll need

A simple to bee hotel project for your garden that you can make quite easily using:

  • A plant pot (9 – 15cm in size)
  • Modelling clay
  • Bamboo canes
  • String

What to do

  1. Cut the bamboo canes to a length that fits the depth of your pot. (The Kinsale Men's Shed will assist with cutting if you contact us).
  2. Tie the bundle of straws or canes together with a piece of string.
  3. Place some modelling clay in the bottom of the pot and stick the bundle of straws or canes in to the clay.
  4. Place the pot horizontally in your garden in a quiet place for the bees to move in.
