  • Width 19cm
  • Length 16cm
  • Weight 1.5kg

How does it work?

These bees seek out cavities in which to lay their eggs. They do not work as a communal swarm and each female is independent of each other. This means that they do not swarm to protect the nest and this is why the bees are very safe to encourage in the garden where children and pets may be present.

What is it made of?

Our Pollinating Log is made from an air dried natural FSC certified timber log with natural bark which gives good insulation to the developing larvae inside the tubes and means you do not need to move the log indoors during winter. Being a natural product the appearance may vary due to seasonal availability or environmental factors.

All the tubes are natural drilled canes which are durable and will used year after year.

Where should I place my Pollinating Bee Log?

The pollinating bee log should be hung on a wall, fence or on a tree using it's natural sea grass hanging rope. The ideal hanging height is between ground level and 1.5m metres. Try to hang the log against a firm upright to prevent it swinging in mid-air. Choose a sunny position which preferably gets some morning sun.
