Bee-block hole-size?

bart1
15 years ago

I was talking to a local orchard owner near me and he suggested a way to increase pollination and bee numbers in the orchard was to hang blocks of wood in the trees with holes drilled into them. The idea is that the bees would use the holes as nesting cavities (I think) and would therefore be very close to all the blooming fruit trees.

Does anyone do this?

What size holes should I drill in the blocks of wood?

Thanks,

Bart
