Garden Bee House
Regular price $19.95
This solitary bee nester is designed to specifically attract non-swarming native bees like the Orchard or Mason Bees. These non-swarming and non-aggressive 'friendly" bees are naturally attracted to holes in wood, but cardboard works really well. This house provides habitat for them that is harder to find in modern gardens. The perfect location for it would be secure on a branch, or similar man made garden post of some sort, tip it forward just slightly so that when it rains the rain wont go inside. It should be set so that it does not have much movement. Place in a warm sunny, sheltered location protected from high winds, ideally oriented to face between southeast and south, between 3 to 6 feet off the ground. Measures: L 6 1/2" x W 3 1/2"
