Orchard Bumble Bee/Red Mason Bee House MBB

(click thumbs to zoom)



This unique solitary beehive is designed to specifically attract non-swarming bees like the Red Mason/Orchard Bee.  These bees are naturally attracted to holes in wood and the Wildlife World nester provides habitat that has become harder to find in modern gardens. The special design is constructed from durable FSC timber and may be located in a variety of ways: it may be located on its base, hung from the rear hanger, or with the rear hanger removed screwed to a wall/fence so that its base is against the wall/fence. The Nester features variable sized cardboard tubes/special drilled nesting canes for bee egg laying, with an adjustable wooden clamp that keeps the tubes packed tightly and resists removal by woodpeckers. (Optional, removable inspection liners are available) Siting: Site in a visible warm place ideally orientated to face between southeast and south and to catch some sun, between 1-2 metres high, (max 3 metres). It is helpful to have soil nearby, and food sources such as flowers, orchards and fruit. Once the box is used occupation will increase in the following years. Features: •Interactive and educational (optional sleeves can be removed for inspection) •Unique tube clamping system resists predator damage •Solid eco-friendly sustainable timber for winter insulation 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.
