Honeybee numbers are falling, so by giving them a home you'll be encouraging nature into your garden and helping bee populations.
What you'll need
A terracotta plant pot (9 – 15cm in size)
Plastic straws or bamboo canes
What to do
Cut the straws or bamboo canes to a length that fits the depth of your pot. If you are using bamboo canes you will need a grown – up to carry out this part as it’s tricky.
Tie the bundle of straws or canes together with a piece of string.
Place some modelling clay in the bottom of the pot and stick the bundle of straws or canes in to the clay.
Place the pot horizontally in your garden in a quiet place for the bees to move in.
