Bumble Bee Nester

Bumble Bee Nester

Beautiful Handmade Habitat for Bumble Bees
Only: £29.99 Robin
Quantity:  In Stock
Product Details

Here is a lovely handmade wooden habitat to encourage the nesting of bumblebees in your garden. Just the right size and made from naturally durable timber which is strongly jointed to provide a nice dry home for bumblebees. The sliding lid is made of recycled agricultural plastic and allows you to have a look inside the box to observe the colony.

The Queen bumblebee spends her winter alone underground, when she emerges in Springtime she is looking for a new home in which to start her new bumblebee colony. The front of the bumblebee nester features a bright yellow surface in contrast with the dark nesting hole and entrance ramp. Queen bumblebees often make their colony after a mouse has nested. So if you attract a mouse in year one, this is good news and will make the box more attractive to a queen bumblebee in year 2. Be sure to leave the mouse nest in place.
