Eco Bee Nester
The eco-friendly Eco Bee Nester is our latest addition to our solitary bee hive collection. They are designed to attract and care for solitary bees in your garden.
There are approximately 20,000 kinds of solitary bee species in the United State! Solitary bees are the least well-known of our bees in America, but they are fantastic pollinators, and they're great to encourage into your vegetable patch, borders, orchards and flower beds. The Bee Nester is made for mason bees and leaf cutter bees, who will use the tubes to lay their eggs each spring and summer, closing up the tubes with either mud or leaves.
Dimensions: 4 x 4 x 6.5 in
What's unique about this Bee Nester:
It is designed and made from natural, environmentally friendly materials, making it kind to nature and for nature. The Eco Nester is formed from natural plant fibers with almost zero waste pollution during production. Once it reaches the end of its life, it can even be degraded into fertilizer.
The pretty color blends into flower patches and gardens, and the rustic hanging string is durable and long-lasting. The internal nesting tubes can be replaced yearly, making this a long-term investment for your local bees.
Where to put your new Bee Nester:
Your new Bee Nester should be hung anywhere between ground level and about 6.5 feet in height. The bees need a clear pathway to the tubes, so try not to nestle it into too much vegetation. But it is a good idea to plant some nectar-rich flowers and plants nearby to feed the bees. Keep the Nester in a sheltered spot, away from prevailing winds and rain. Ideally, you want the front of the Nester facing the morning sunshine so that it warms up through the day. You can also angle it slightly downwards to prevent rainwater from trickling inside. As autumn approaches and solitary bee numbers reduce, you can fit the front guard on to act as a predator guard to stop woodpeckers from taking the eggs.
