Solitary Bee House with fully opening trays for egg cell inspection.
This unique solitary bee hive is designed to specifically attract non-swarming bees like the Red Mason Bee and Leafcutter Bee.
These bees are naturally attracted to holes in wood for nesting/egg laying and this bee house provides a habitat that has become harder to find in modern gardens.
Naturally attractive to solitary bees
Solid durable construction gives winter insulation and predator protection.
Can be left outdoor all year.
Easy opening for study.
Deep trays ensure female bees are safe from predators.
This special design is constructed from durable FSC timber. Unscrewing the wing nuts under the base from the integral fixed steel bolts allows the trays to be carefully separated or removed.
When opened in this way it is easy to inspect the formation of any small cells where the eggs have been laid, or to check for predator action.
