Once your paper tubes are complete, be sure to mark which end is the "front door" so that if a tube full of bees spills, you'll know which end is the front and which end is the back.
If the tube is placed in the nesting box in the wrong direction, the bees will die because they do not know how to turn around and go the other way.
Follow all of the given steps to make as many tubes as you need for your nest site. Happy nesting!
