doesn't have to be prohibitively expensive! In honor of the patron saint of beekeepers, here's a plan for a top-bar you can build out of a 55gal barrel and some pallet wood, plus a guide for trapping your own from nature! Happy Valentine's Day 🐝

For people who have words related to today filtered: the above post isn't about celebrating the holiday, it's about bees! It is safe, I promise

Beekeeping isn't the only way to - solitary are just as important. Building a bee hotel can offer shelter for wild bees, and as a bonus they'll pollinate your garden for you style

@socalledunitedstates I was just thinking about making one of those, this is perfect, thanks! 😊

@socalledunitedstates Oh my goodness, my university has one of those shaped like the school's logo. I've always thought it was just a weird art installation - this is so much better and actually 100% in theme with the building it's built next to!

@socalledunitedstates ...not to mention that the bees also get a sweet pool with a sauna, and a really swank bar.
