Solitary bee home

RSPB > Wildlife > Bees

    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 siting 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.

    • Made in the UK
    • Against deforestation: Made from FSC ® certified pine.
    • Bespoke 8mm and 10mm nest holes for red mason and leafcutter bees.
    • Optimal 15cm hole depth ensuring plenty of eggs are laid and protected.
    • Removable trays for inspection and cleaning.

    Did you know we have over 260 species of bee in the UK?

    Rather than living in colonies, the vast majority of our bees are solitary, with each female building her own nests. 

    These non-aggressive, highly efficient pollinators are important to our ecosystems and economy, including the pollination of many of our wildflowers and fruit and vegetable crops.

    Having a variety of pollinator-friendly plants in your garden from March to September is a great way to help, while providing a safe, cosy nesting site will also make a big difference.

    Excellent Quality
    I have looked at other bee nesting products and this is by far the best I have seen. It is very sturdy and well made. The bee nesting blocks are smooth. Bought in winter so yet to see if bees use it.
