Bertie's Bee House
Bertie’s Bee House provides a habitat for solitary bees. Solitary bees are not aggressive and very rarely sting, so they are safe around children and pets. The bees will lay eggs in the tubes and seal the ends with mud or leaves, protecting their offspring until the emerge from the tubes in the spring. This kit comes with a bee house, magnifying glass and project book, making it an ideal gift for children.
The house is constructed of solid FSC timber, and is not treated with chemical preservatives which may harm the bees. The bee house should be situated 1.5-1.75 m above the ground in a warm and sunny position, ideally facing south or south east.
