Here are some nice videos on making bee and insect watering stations.
To complete this BB, the minimum requirements are:
- you must make a bee/insect watering station
To show you've completed this Badge Bit, you must:
- post a picture of the materials for the watering station
- post a picture of the watering station under construction
- post a picture of the completed bee/insect watering station with water
These are the materials I used to make my bee/insect watering station: a round piece of dimensional lumber and some twigs. I wanted to keep this as simple and natural as possible, so I stuck with keeping it very simple.
I used a chainsaw to carve out the basin portion of my bee/insect watering station.
These are a couple of pictures that show my bee/insect watering station does indeed hold water, in a manner that bees and insects won't drown when they come to drink water.
Just for future reference, designs like the one I just did here might need a little more fiddling with them and love and care. I left my bee watering station full of water overnight, and it appears to no longer hold water, probably because the water expanded when it froze and cracked it.
