Bamboo Bee House
Help save our bees with this fabulous, natural Bamboo Bee House! Bees are gentle creatures that pollinate flowers and should be every gardener's friend. Now you can return the favour and encourage our little friends to your garden. It is a terrific environmentally home framed in wood with a metal roof that is perfect for bees and other garden insects and can be easily hung from a tree using the chain provided.
To attract bees, simply hang from a tree facing the morning sun. Some of the larger tubes are just the right size for masonry or leaf cutter bees. These bees do not swarm so there would only be a few of them using the box. The bees lay an egg in a tube, put balls of pollen with it and then stop up the end of the tube with leaves or mud and in the spring the young adult eats its way out and the cycle starts over.
Other insects such as ladybirds will also happily use the smaller tubes in this habitat. Ladybirds, in particular, provide a wonderful, natural garden pest removal service by helping to get rid of aphids and other unwanted bugs.
