    First Impressions - attaching

    Posted by Frank Breckenridge on Mar 19th 2022

    Installing this house to my support. I chose my wood fence and specifically one of the 4" x 4" posts. I found that the one hole at back designed for the attachment (to a nail or screw) was not sufficient to give a solid attachment. The house is much longer than tall and that one attachment point has to support the whole house. I decided I needed more. So I drilled a hole in the back just below the provided point and used a screw to fix it more securely. You might consider providing two holes in the back for better support. I'll add another review after I've actually had bees etc. later on this year. ------***------ Crown Bees response: Thanks for your feedback Frank. We have found that structurally, the chalet and even larger tower, hold well with a good screw or nail. If on a 4x4 post in a windy environment, it may be wise to screw straight through the back of the house. We hope your bee raising endeavor is successful! The Crown Bees Team.
