You don't only find #SolitaryBees in your #Bee hotel 🐝

Bee hotels should be brought indoors, taken apart, and cleaned before #Winter, to give solitary bees a better chance of survival 🐝

Only buy the type that can be taken apart and cleaned 🐝

Carefully take the sections apart, and lay them out on a flat surface.

Be gentle, but don't be afraid to touch the cocoons.

You will see the cocoons in small compartments where the bee built mud walls, to separate each egg, as it was laid in pollen from nearby flowers 🐝 ImageImageImageImage

Use a soft small brush and gently brush away the soil partitions that separate each cocoon.

You don't have to use a brush, but it makes it easier to clean the dry soil away.

Be careful to not make a mess 🐝 ImageImageImageImage
