I went to the garden center and bought 6 big fiber planting pots. They have every size, these are like 16x16 round. I filled the 4 holes in the bottom with puddy and drilled a 7/8th hole in the side. One piece of square plywood 18 inches covers the top. I drilled 2 holes in the pot and 2 in the plywood threaded wire to hold it on ,and so I can pull it up into a tree easy.
Compared to a normal bee box or nuc, it wont be as easy to get the bees out if they have been in it for a while, put I plan on putting these up in the woods and only checking them once in a while. If these get swiped or shot up I'm only out 4 bucks.
I'm not tense, Just terribly, terribly alert!
