What kind of bees?
These friendly bees are industrious and safe around children and pets. The bees are naturally attracted to holes in wood and the Wildlife World solitary beehive provides a habitat that has become harder to find in modern gardens. Fascinating and great for education, the beehive trays can be carefully separated to view the formation of small cells where the eggs are laid, or indeed where predators have been active.
Where should I place my Bug & Bee House?
- Site in a sunny position facing between south and south east to catch some morning sun. Mounting height between ground level and 1.5m.
- Stacking trays may be inspected after bee activity has ceased (Autumn/Winter)
- Protect full bee tubes with mesh to prevent predation by woodpeckers
What is it made of?
Our original design Solitary Beehive is an interactive solitary bee habitat constructed in durable FSC certified timber with stacking trays which can be opened for inspection and/or cleaning. The hole sizes of this habitat are precisely specified to attract non-swarming bees like the Red Mason Bee, Leafcutter Bee and other solitary bees.
