Did you know there are more than 2000 different species of bees?

And most of them live underground, according to bee enthusiast and New South Wales Shedder Gavin Smith.

Whether you’re in lockdown or not, Gavin suggests this simple project using scrap timber is a winner that will greatly help our native bees.

And be warned, Gavin reckons once you find yourself learning about Australia’s native bees you may well be captivated like he was.

You can hear Gavin talking to John Paul Young on The Shed Wireless episode 6 (season 3).
