How Do I Make a Bumble Bee Nesting Box?

Answer

You can easily make a bumble bee nesting box using a wooden box or even pottery flower pots. All you have to do is get some old bedding, probably from a mouse nest and fill the box or flower pot with the bedding. This will attract bumblebee queens during spring. Alternatively, you could get a block of wood, drill deep holes in it and then place it in a suitable place in the garden.
