Langley orchard with yurt in mid April
In mid- April, a few trees were in bloom. Mostly the crabapples and other pollinizers. The yurt is in the background. We set out 1200 cocoons with 650 nesting tunnels- about 1 nesting hole per female in 9 Highrises.

|I installed ten highrises inside this yurt for a start.
The emergence shelters containing the cocoons sit on top of each highrise.
Between 100-200 cocoons are in each emergence shelter.
In two weeks time I will add more highrises and cocoons.
|I use hooks to hang Highrises on the uprights of the Yurt.|
