The perfect nest for the busiest of bees.
Designed to provide nest cells for solitary bees, such as mason bees yellow-faced bees and leafcutter bees, this fair trade bee house is sustainably sourced entirely from reclaimed driftwood from Bali, Indonesia.
The handy hanging loop means this bee house can be attached to tree trunks, branches or fixtures. There are over 240 species of solitary bees in the UK, and providing an artificial nesting site will encourage beneficial pollinators into your garden.
Throughout the spring and summer months, different species of bee will visit your attractive hotel to build cells and lay eggs. They will leave pollen and nectar to feed their young, and block the entrance with leaves, mud and other garden debris. Look out for this, and you will always know when you've become a foster parent.
Nutley's tip: bee houses must be positioned in full sun, facing south or east, and be at least a metre off the ground. Ideally, place your bee house in a quieter part of your garden, where bees are less likely to be disturbed.
Measures: 14cm x 12cm x 23cm.
