Help save our bees with these bamboo bee nesting tubes for solitary bees (safe pollinating bees) and increase vegetables, flower and fruit yields in your garden.
A great addition to a wildlife-friendly garden, these specially designed tubes for mason/orchard bees (Megachile spp) can be used to fill existing bee boxes or to make your own simple bee nester.
From March to August these bee species will lay eggs in the tubes and create a series of cells from mud or leaf. The larvae will develop over the winter period in the tubes and will then emerge the following spring.
The tubes come in a range of sizes from 5mm up to 12mm. The middle sizes, 7mm to 10mm, are best for solitary bees. (Tubes length = 15cm.)
Ensure that your own bee box is well-insulated or overwinter your full bee box in shed or garage. If left outside cover the full tubes with wire mesh to prevent predation from woodpeckers.
