Yes you could use them as bait boxes but in an ideal world and if you go by the research there probably a little on the small side. In regards to height for position just put them lower, flat shed roofs or garage. The top of fence posts is perfectly good. Just make them easy to get to no need to climb!!
Yep it's a flat roof but up 10ft. Bees prefer his chimney so need it as high as possible so they find box before flue, as a chimney sweep it gives me a total headache🤣. He has a lower roof,. But I'm worried they will go over the top and straight for the house
