Help save our bees with this seasonal nesting tin!
You can help the conservation of our native bees by simply hanging this bee house in your garden. Then sit back and watch the fascinating life cycle of your new pollinating team.
Simply remove the lid and peel back the seal before hanging. The card tubes are the perfect size for pollinating bees and the length of the tubes allows safe development of the female bees. The nesting tubes are surrounded with a cosy cardboard layer which protects both frost and heat.
The clever defence lid can be fixed to the back of the nester for safe keeping during Spring and Summer. In Autumn it should be re-fixed to the front of the nester tubes to protected your next generation of bees from would-be predators such as woodpeckers.
The nester can be hung between ground level and up to a max height of around 2 metres. Choose a sheltered spot so that the nester does not swing about too much.
You should find that the number of bees will increase from year to year. In extreme winter conditions the bee house may be moved to a shed or cool frost free place. The tubes may need replacing after 2-3 years (replacement tubes available from the RSPB under product code R421079).
Suitable for Mason, Orchard and Leaf Cutter Bees.
Bees are vital to our food crops, however there has been an overall decline of bees and honey-bees over the last 50 years due to bee-killing pesticides, habitat loss, disease and climate change.
