Esschert Design Solitary Bee House
Invite beneficial bees to stay in your garden with this Esschert Design Solitary Bee House. A variety of bee species, such as the hornfaced and orchard bees, prefer to live alone rather than in colonies, and are welcome pollinators in many gardens. These bees tend to be quite mild mannered, and nest in predrilled holes. As they cannot excavate their own holes, offering them an appropriate shelter in your backyard can entice them to stay in the area. The wooden frame and pitched, metal roof on this home create a classic silhouette, while a wealth of bamboo tubes fills the interior. A female bee will lay a few eggs in the tubes, which remain dormant through the winter, and the young will emerge in the spring ready to buzz around your garden. The soft green, painted finish on the wood and silver colored roof enhance your flowers, and an upright metal wire and top loop allow the unit to hang from a hook easily. Offer gentle bees a home within your landscaping using this Solitary Bee House.
