Wooden Bee Nesting Tubes

Wooden bee tubes x 50
Only: £7.50 Robin
Quantity:  In Stock
Product Details

These specially drilled wooden tubes are the ideal diameter for mason/orchard bees (Megachile spp). They can be used to fill existing bee boxes, or to make your own simple bee nester.

Solitary bees are gentle bees and are wonderful pollinators to increase vegetable, flower and fruit yields in your garden.

From March to August these bee species will lay eggs in the tubes and create a series of cells from mud or leaf. The larvae will develop over the winter period in the tubes and will then emerge the following spring. Ensure that your own bee box is well-insulated or overwinter your full bee box in shed or garage. If left outside cover the full tubes with wire mesh to prevent predation from greedy woodpeckers

Siting 

Position your bee box in a sunny position about 1 or 2 metres above ground, preferably amongst flowers/foliage, so that the face of the bee box catches the morning sun.
