Facinating and great for education, the beehive is designed not only as a habitat, but to be easily dismantled to see the formation of small cells where the eggs are laid, or indeed where predators have been active. Always a friend to the gardener, attracting solitary bees to the garden is not only safe, but beneficial to pollination of flowers, fruit and vegetables.
Why have a Solitary Bee Nester in the garden?
Separate from common farmed Honey bees, Solitary bees have a vital role in the plant pollination process, both in ornamental and food production roles. However, bees worldwide are in decline and their habitats under threat from loss of habitat, intensive agriculture, development and indiscriminate use of pesticides and herbicides.
By offering Solitary bees a home in a safe and protected environment, you can make a really practical and potentially species saving contribution to conservation and biodiversity whilst benefitting the pollination of plantlife in the surrounding area.
