Solitary Bee House

Solitary Bee House. An interactive solitary bee house and insect box constructed in durable FSC timber with indivdual cell trays which can be opened for inspection and/or cleaning.

This unique solitary beehive is designed specifically to attract non-swarming bees like the Red Mason Bee and Leafcutter Bee. Solitary bees do not swarm, are gregarious and safe around children and pets.

These bees are naturally attracted to holes in wood and this solitary beehive provides habitat that has become harder to find in modern gardens.

More Information

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.
