Hang this under an eve or some form of overhead protection in the morning sun. Female bees fill the tubes with their eggs, and nectar and pollen for the young to eat. Then seal it shut. In spring, you will have baby bees.
Each one is hand charred on the front to attract the female bees.
This house measures aprox. 4"L x 4"W x 10"H total.
The cedar wood will last years. The only maintenance would be to clean the holes out after the bees emerge to get it ready for the new season. I have mine hanging under the eave of my shed where it will get morning sun and partial shade in the afternoon.
