Solitary bees are unappreciated, but they make up most of the bee species. And they make up a significant number of the important pollinator bees that we so desparatly need. Building a solitary bee hotel is easy. The fact I took so long to build some myself is, quite frankly, deplorable. Do not make my mistake: make a solitary bee hotel today.
