These elegant bee houses are designed for solitary bees, which is the no-sting type of bee. The houses are made of machined oak and the roof is made of steel. Each house has a small hole drilled at the back so it can be easily wall mounted and the screws and raw plugs are included.
A solitary bee will lay her eggs in the hole before capping it with mud. In the spring when the eggs hatch the new bees will make their way out by chewing through the mud. Solitary bees are not stingers, but they are very good pollinators, so they are a welcome addition to any garden.
Each bee house is 10cm long. 3 bees houses come packed in a recycled cardboard box.
