Ideally you should look to position your BeeHome somewhere you can sit back, relax and enjoy the activity of the bees once nesting activities begin.
Position your BeeHome to receive a good amount of sunshine throughout the day. Early morning sun is important, as this helps to warm the bees up and assists them to become more active & productive earlier in the day. If possible, position in a sheltered location away from strong prevailing winds.
Positioning your BeeHome under an overhang or covered area can often be a good choice.
Positioning your BeeHome near bird feeders is not suggested as emerging leafcutter bees will become an attractive meal for nearby birds.
We suggest locating your BeeHome a minimum of 1 meter above ground and no higher than 2 meters.
Your BeeHome has been designed with sufficient overhang of the roof to prevent ingress of rain from affecting the nesting tunnels. However, please DO NOT place the BeeHome in a position where it could be affected by water from garden hoses and irrigation. Below is an example of unsuitable location to position your BeeHome.
