Solitary Pollen Bee Nest – a safe home for gentle pollinators!
The solitary pollen bee nest has been scientifically designed to attract a variety of wild native pollen bees, including mason bees, to your garden. These non-aggressive, gentle pollinators will vastly improve pollination resulting in spectacular flowers and crops. They can pollinate fifteen times faster than honey bees and one solitary pollen bee nest can produce 100-150 bees. The perfect house for solitary bees, like mason bees.
The nest is made of recycled styrene and is 5” long with a pattern of broken colour on the exterior which draws the bee’s attention. It has 20 nesting tubes of various sizes to accommodate the requirements of different native bee species. The space between the tubes is filled with a porous volcanic rock for insulation against cold and heat, to discourage mites and to absorb moisture thus preventing fungus growth. A plastic shield on the front and back protects the nest from rodents and birds.
The nest is easy to install and comes completely assembled. Makes a great gift for a gardener. An annual cleaning of the tubes is recommended once all the bees have emerged. The nest can be left in the garden all year. Made in Canada.
