Great photos of the bumble bees! Do you have instructions on creating bee housing for those native and solitary bees? I know that at the Natural History Museum in L.A., we have posts drilled with small holes. Are there other housings that bumble bees like? as well as other solitary bees? we're in southern California, in L.A., and we're creating a new teaching garden. Thanks!

Thank you for your comment. Robbin Thorp, distinguished emeritus professor of entomology at UC Davis, compiled this list: http://archive.beebiology.ucdavis.edu/NATIVEBEES/nativebeenestingsiteresources.html  
He has used nuc boxes for bumble bees...More later...
