Finally, an affordable bee hotel in Paris (24 Photos)

  • DPzzzzle

    Better than that dumb Seinfeld movie.

  • Kahless

    "You have probably guessed how most of these hotels have been made…"

    I HIGHLY doubt anyone guessed that before seeing the picture, and even then…

  • Bluntaholic

    Hmm maybe if I do this they will stop drilling nickle size holes in all my deck railings. Some of my rails look like swiss cheese on the bottom cuz of these lil bee's

    • .Krookz

      Thats what they are trying to stop

  • tom turbo

    thanks chive, thats cool

    • Dirty_Dingus

      Interesting. Also….AHHHH BEES!!!

  • Luis Beltranudo

    I know where I'm gonna bee going on my next vacation

  • Happy

    Wish I could ride a bee. Like in Honey I Shrunk the Kids. When they rode the ant. Classic.

  • The Oldar

    Very cool.

    "Hmm. Now look who's mayor. First order of business; free honey for everyone! Yay, Mayor Bee, Mayor Bee, Mayor Bee–OW! Oh, done stung myself. Bye world…"

  • unstablegirl

    French bees. Just as lovable as North American bees, but more snotty.

  • Shade

    Hate these fuckers… really. Weird but still amazing

  • bcarson810

    Great environmental idea. But I'd be terrified to go anywhere near one.

    • GPBR

      Why Mason bees don't sting.

      • Bill Wald

        He has an OCD that requires him to swing at bee hives with a stick.

  • Damian

    I thought it was colony collapse syndrome that was killing bees. We've been using insecticides for decades and harsher chemicals in years past so I think this correlation is shit.

  • Hendu0705

    Yeah but agricultural science is learning new more effective ways to make pesticides. No bees, no humans. It's that simple. I hate the idea of getting stung as much as the next person, but we need bees. So even if you aren't going to make a "bee hotel" at least stop killing them. And if you arent going to stop killing them, then I think I speak for all people who like living when I say fuck all the way off.

    Great for the environment, but your neighbors will hate you!

  • acdc

    looks like those would catch fire "real nice like"……

    • Underbaker

      #24 He heard that and you are now on his list.

  • Trish Sidelko

    #12 Yeah, because making a bee hotel above your window sounds like a great idea.

  • Betsy

    Can anyone share a source of instructions to make this kind of bee hotel? The pictures are great butI could use more specifications. Thanks.

    • GPBR

      Quite literally, find object, drill hole. Make it about 5/16th-3/8" and go at least 3 – 6 inches deep, just don't go through the back.

  • softailrider

    These constructs are for mason bees, not honeybees. Mason bees do aid in pollination as do honeybees. You just don't get the benefits of the honey production. Colony collapse has killed about 50% of the honeybees in the US.

  • MohawkJon

    I am pro bee.
    I just don't know how the other people in my apartment complex feel.
