Description

Size - 21 cm wide x 12 cm deep x 18 cm high

Designed with the help of an entomologist, expert in insects’, the Bambaw solitary bee house guarantees a safer environment for our bees, allowing them to continue their pollination wonder.

The little hotels are handmade in Bali with repurposed bamboo stems, unfit to become drinking straws.

In the UK only, we can count over 240 species of solitary bees. Most of the solitary bees are entirely harmless and peaceful. They are perfect companions for busy environments where kids or adults scared of being stung might be present. Instead of regrouping into hives, they will make individual nest cells for their larvae.

The insect hotel is the perfect host for the Red Mason and Leafcutter solitary bees. Those cavity nesters usually look for dead wood, hollow stems, or crevices in loose masonry to lay their eggs.

How To Use

Place your solitary bee house against a flat surface, away from the wind. Put the front of the bee house for the "front" to face south or southwest, where it will receive the most sunlight in winter, keeping the solitary bees cosy during colder months.
