locating my beehouse -- okay near bat house?
I am setting up a mason bee house and want to make sure it's in the best possible spot. One of the choices is very near my bat house, and I wasn't sure if bees would consider that less-than-ideal.
My bat house is under the eaves of a very sunny s/sw exposure, about fifteen feet from the ground. I could put the bee house 2' off the ground on that same wall, or I could put it 10' off the ground under the eaves on the adjacent eastern wall. This area is about 40' from my veggie garden.
Alternatively I could put it 10' off the ground on a partially sunny (very sunny in winter) w/sw wall 50' away from the bat house wall. This wall is about 10' from my perennial beds and 40' from my neighbor's extensive perennial beds.
Thanks for any advice! I tried searching on 'bats' to see if this had ever been asked before but didn't come up with anything that seemed promising.
