I just received the Pink & Blue & have hung them from a shepherd's hook that won't support my hanging baskets any longer. I used reusable rubber gear ties I found today @ Lowe's that worked much better than the chain & S-hooks I thought I wanted. You have to bring them in during the winter months to protect the larvae laid inside so this will be interesting to see if mine fill up & thrive. I placed them in my flower bed that also has 4 tomato plants & 2 pepper plants & my yellow squash doing well there. <3
I bought 2 of these, 1 each in blue and purple. One's for me, the other a gift for a friend. They seem sturdy and well made, beautiful, vibrant colors as shown. The hanger on one is slightly misplaced so will have to be fixed. Description says "Instructions included" but there were no instructions with either house. Neither of these is a big deal but wanted to point them out. I can relay the instructions to my friend.
These houses are amazing. We purchased two of them this spring, placed them in the morning sun, and the bees visited. As of this writing, all tubes in both houses are filled, as are most of the spaces in-between. We are so pleased with our purchase. Please consider purchasing these homes to help save the bees.
