Might not work over here any more. On Tuesday 3 more states legalized marihuana, this might be counter productive now that the U.S. is finally loosening up.

Good for a laugh but probably not a viable tactic.
Would only distract from the very damning fact that the agencies that are supposed to be protecting us from such evils are busily looking the other way.

Conserving wild bees

Research suggests that bumble bee boxes have a very low success rate in actually attracting bees into them. We find that if you create an environment where first of all you can attract mice inside, such as a pile of stones, a drystone wall, paving slabs with intentionally made cavities underneath, this will increase the success rate.

Most bumble bee species need a dry space about the size a football, with a narrow entrance tunnel approximately 2cm in diameter and 20 cm long. Most species nest underground along the base of a linear feature such as a hedge or wall. Sites need to be sheltered and out of direct sunlight.

There is a spectacular display of wild bee hotels here
