Mid-Century Style Wood and Bamboo Bee Habitat
Handcrafted from Forest Stewardship Council certified wood and bamboo, this Mid-Century Style Wood and Bamboo Bee Habitat is sealed with a nontoxic, water-based finish and will provide a home to beneficial bee populations in your neighborhood. About 30% of the human food supply and 90% of wild plants depend on pollination from bees, the majority of which are native bees. In fact, a native bee can pollinate several thousand blooms per day. Because their sole focus is pollination, they do not produce honey or beeswax – and native bees make friendly neighbors, as they are not aggressive!
About 140 species of native bees make their homes in preexisting insect holes and woodpecker drillings, so they’re naturally drawn to the bamboo tubes in this bee house. Once a female bee establishes her home, she will lay her eggs, fill the tubes with nourishment and seal off the entrance so her young can safely grow. We recommend mounting your bee house between five and seven feet above the ground facing the morning sun.
