Esschert Design Basic Solitary Bee House

Add an adorable shelter for beneficial bees to your garden with this Esschert Design Basic Solitary Bee House. Many bee species live alone, rather than in a colony, and these mild mannered insects can be welcome garden visitors. Mason, orchard, and horn faced bees commonly nest in holes found on trees or in buildings, and this charming unit provides them a great housing option. The pine frame mimics a traditional shelter, with its rectangular body and pitched roof. The center section of the item holds a wealth of differently sized bamboo tubes, in which a female bee can easily lay her eggs. The roof keeps the eggs protected from rain, while a line drawing of a bee and its Latin family name brings an artistic flair to the piece. A keyhole opening on the home's flat back allows you to attach it to a post, tree, or wall using only a nail. The pine construction ensures a natural look, and will weather perfectly for use for many seasons. Welcome bees into your backyard with this Basic Solitary Bee House.
