Made from solid hard wood (FSC approved) this bee hive for solitary bees has a flip top which allows you to view the bees and their cells / larvae actually live and close up with complete safety.
The sort of solitary bees that would use this hive are Leafcutter bees, Orchard bees, Mason bees, Carder bees and many others.
Bees are the lifeblood of our plants, fruit, flowers and vegetables, you can provide a home for them as well as benefiting from their pollination of your garden and the increase in yields this brings with it.
The roof section swivels open to reveal a perspex covered tray allowing frequent and safe monitoring of bee nesting activity and larvae development. Unscrewing the wingnuts below the base allows the trays to be carefully and periodically separated to monitor nesting activity and to check for predator action.
Solitary bees are naturally attracted to holes in wood for nesting and egg laying. The Wildlife World Interactive Solitary Bee Hive provides habitat that has become harder to find in our modern gardens.
