If you’re looking to build a home for your buzzing, pollinating garden helpers, consider this simple bucket bee hive design, tutorialized by Thinkenstein. It’s not for harvesting honey, but will help bring these imperative insects to your garden. The author admits that this design is untested, and there’s a great discussion in the comments. For a professional’s advice on getting started in beekeeping, check out Cameo Wood’s beekeeping gift guide from last holiday season.
