Can You Guess What This Structure Is? (27 pics)

This construction is a bee hotel in Paris, designed for bees to live and lay eggs. While some bees build hives, there are species of solitary bees that can’t live in beehives and need their own nests. These species don’t have many suitable places for nesting in urban areas, so people build such hotels of stones and wood with drilled holes. Here are the pictures of various bee hotels from around the world.

Ummmm.....I could have thought bees have a very nice living space, called a HIVE. It's primary purpose is to keeps it's Queen alive, laying eggs and in return it drives the worlds ecosystem by pollinating plants.....this must be better it made by humans that CAN'T get along with each other and are completely selfish, and make more mistakes they do things correctly....

That reminds me, I need to make one of those for the mason bees around here before the end of the season.

Gorgeous, not all bees are hive minded. Structures like this are built for mason and bumble bees who do not live communally.

With the decline in honey bees, farmers have turned to mason bees and such in order to pollinate their crops.

At any rate, those are awesome looking structures. I'll have to fiddle around a bit and emulate the nicer ones in the garden.
