Native Bee Hotel
Bamboo home for bees
Solitary bees number over 1200 species in Australia. They require a safe place in which to lay their eggs where the bee enters the cavity of the bamboo piece, lays her eggs, leaves and seals the entrance with a mud flap. The egg once incubated, hatches and the larvae grows into a juvenile and pushes through the mud flap to enter the world leaving the hotel room available for the next solitary bee looking for a private room.
