I have one that plugs into my phone and it works pretty well, considering its cost. You can buy dedicated endoscopes, but I couldn't justify the cost unless i intended to spend a lot of time investigating otherwise inaccessible cavities.

I got one off wish . com, cheap but works well enough for what I wanted it for, looking inside the hive. Only trouble is you cant move the camera, you just have to feed it in and hope for the best by twiddling it around abit. Got a few good shots inside of bees and comb but as for getting between the comb, you'd be very lucky if you can. Think it was £6 soo not much.

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
