Locating your bumble bee nesting boxes

 Should the Bumble Bee Nesting Box and Bumble Bee Abode be raised from the ground?

Without doubt, the nesting box and abode should be clear from any ground contact to ensure the product remains dry. However, it is imperative to keep the hole close to the ground as possible to ensure the virtual simulation of a rodent nesting hole, which typically form close to the ground.

Something as simple as digging out a small amount of soil, placing a few stones in the hole and siting the box on something solid will help lengthen the life span of the box. It’s important to ensure the hole remains clear at all times to enable full access.
