This remarkable structure can be found in Place des Jardins in
Paris and is known as a bee hotel. You may be wondering what bees need a
hotel for, when they make their own hives. The truth is that many
species of bees are solitary – the do not live in hives but instead
construct their own nest. The main reason for this is because in these
species every female is fertile and this would not make for comfortable
communal living in a hive.
