Siting & positioning:
There are no hard and fast rules for siting but care should be taken to select a sunny site that is protected from wind and rain. Examples of good sites include allotment sheds, pergolas, walls, gardens and even balconies up to the third or fourth floor.
Cleaning and inspection:
Nesting aids should also be left outside during the winter because otherwise the insects will emerge from their winter hiding places too early and die.
Hymenoptera such as wild bees, sand wasps and common wasps.
