If your bees have been released and you haven’t seen any bee activity, please watch this video on how to examine your bee cocoons. Do this outside next to your bee house. Grab a piece of paper or paper towel and tip out all the contents of your PVC tube and examine your cocoons. If they’ve all emerged, then you know they’re in your garden. We mark your nesting block with a scent marker to attract them back, but sometimes they just prefer your yard and habitat, which means they’ve laid babies in your garden. One of mine laid babies in my deck umbrella hole. After looking at everything please slide everything back in the tube and place back on top of the nesting block (the bee smells inside will help the bees track their block).
