Bumblebees are wonderful pollinators and the lodge can be situated in the flower garden or orchard or may be moved to the vegetable plot to increase crop yields. The Beepol features an inner doorway which can be set to only allow incoming bees, which gives the option of allowing movement of the bumblebee colony at night to a new pollinating area. The anti wax moth door also provides a defensible entrance to the lodge and you will find that a guard bumblebee will position itself just behind the flip-up perspex door. It is fascinating to see how easily the bees master the entrance door.
Native bumblebee colonies are available to purchase from reputable breeders from April to August. At the end of the Summer your bumblebee colony will disperse and the new queens will hibernate underground over winter to emerge next Spring to build their own colonies. Thus building up bumblebee numbers in your locality.
