Make the safe choice
Follow the bees at Rockspan Farm @beefosterco
To raise bees, do the right things...
We put Beestras all over the farm in good places and bad. By now (August, 2020) most have bees inside, but some don't. Our preliminary conclusions are these: Face your Beestra east and in good sunlight. Place it where there are plenty of flowers nearby. Make sure there's water and mud nearby to make caps. Don't use pesticides or insecticides and ask your neighbors to do the same. If you live in an area where most of the native bees are missing or dead, you will be disappointed. Putting up a Beestra may be the best way to find out if above-ground-nesting native bees are alive and reproducing. You may never know without a Beestra in a proper setting.
