Always a friend to the gardener, solitary bees are not only safe but beneficial for the pollination of flowers, fruit and vegetables. The hole sizes of this habitat have been designed to attract non-swarming bees like the red mason bee and leafcutter bee. They are friendly, industrious and safe around children and pets. 

Fascinating and great for education, the roof section flips up to reveal a perspex-covered tray, allowing frequent, easy monitoring of bee nesting activity and larvae development. After bee activity has ceased in autumn, you can also carefully separate the beehive trays to view the formation of small cells where the eggs are laid.

Site in a sunny position facing south or south-east to catch the morning sun, mounting between ground level and 1.5m. You can protect full bee tubes with mesh to prevent predation by woodpeckers.
