Solitary Bee Tubes Wooden - Pack 50 BTW

(click thumbs to zoom)



Experience the fascinating world of bees - 50 Bee Nesting Tubes for Solitary Bees (safe pollinating bees) to increase vegetables, flower and fruit yields in your garden. Use as replacements in existing boxes, or make your own nester using a piece of drain pipe & string for hanging (example shown in image 2). These specially designed tubes for solitary bees (mason/orchard/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. If using your own box ensure it is well insulated, or take it into an outbuilding during winter for frost protection. When the tubes are filled it may be necessary to protect the tubes/eggs from woodpeckers. This can be simply achieved by placing some protective wire mesh over the face of the box. Important Information: These products are for wild creatures and as such, you should not expect immediate habitation. We suggest you carefully read the supplied instructions for siting and provide this product in a suitable habitat for the target species. The product can then be re-visited 6 - 12 months later, or in the appropriate season, to see if it is being used. If after 24 months the product has not been used, it may be worth choosing an alternative location to site it and/or look to see what improvements you can make to provide a suitable environment for your target species (flowers, woodpiles, rough areas of garden etc) Because many species of creature are constantly seeking refuge and safe nesting sites, you may find that an unexpected species is using your product - this is part of nature and all species should be welcomed as part of your wildlife garden. Pack of 50: 7-10mm diameter x 150mm clean drilled
