KU Builds Hotel for Bees North of Lawrence

LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — The University of Kansas has added a bee hotel to its Field Station trails north of Lawrence to raise awareness about native bee species.  The bee hotel is a wooden structure with a glass side that provides a nesting site for bees and will allow hikers to observe the inside of an operating bee colony.  Bee populations are declining nationwide largely due to a loss of natural habitat space.  University of Kansas doctoral student Daphne Mayes says she hopes the bee hotel will help visitors learn about the importance of bees as pollinators.  The bee hotel was built as volunteer project through the U.S. Green Building Council's Green Apple Day of Service.
