Specially designed for two common bee home dwellers; the leafcutter and red mason bees. This high-quality bee home comes with removable nesting trays, metal fastenings for secure sitting, and an overhanging roof to protect bees from the rain. The apex roof is painted (using non-toxic paint) a light sage green and matches the style of some of our most popular bird nest boxes.
We would recommend cleaning the home every 1 to 2 years. You can either clean your home once nests have vacated in Spring or at the end of the breeding season (late September to October). The trays can be cleaned with a brush and mild, non-toxic disinfectant such as Ark-Klens.
If you are cleaning in late September-October, please carefully remove any bee cocoons present and place these in a ‘release box’ where they will stay until the following Spring.
A small container, ideally made of natural materials such as cardboard or wood, can be used as a ‘release box’ (e.g. a capped toilet roll). Avoid metal containers. Plastic boxes can be used, but the lid should be left loose and the bottom lined with tissue to prevent condensation. The box will need a small hole (minimum 10mm diameter) to allow bees to emerge in Spring.
The release box should be kept somewhere cool and dry (for example a garden shed or garage) during the winter months and then placed outside in Spring for the bees to emerge when ready.
