VIDEO l How to make a solitary bee home

Bees are in trouble. The number of bees in Britain is falling dramatically and three bumblebee species are already extinct.

Many factors are causing the declining population, from having less habitats, to climate change and even certain pesticides can harm bees. Many bee homes have been destroyed as development continues around the UK and bees are left nowhere to lay their eggs.

Tash and I are doing our bit to encourage bee activity and making our Eastend garden bee-friendly by making our own solitary bee home. We hope you follow in our steps and help the bee population.
