MasonBees are proud to introduce our Bee Lodge. Hand-crafted in the UK from machined Birch plywood, this bee-friendly nesting site will make a great addition to any garden or green space and a perfect home for visiting bees.
Our Lodge (TM) features two different types of nesting material for bees to occupy - our cardboard nesting tubes and a routed wooden observation drawer.
Bee 'Hotels' have become very popular in recent years, but if they can't easily be cleaned, will usually become very risky place for bees to nest as time goes on - using our Nesting Tubes allows a chance each season to remove predators and parasites that would ultimately harm the cocoons.
The Perspex-topped observation drawer allows for safely observing nesting bees at work, making the Lodge a fantastic learning tool. The channels in the drawer and the Nesting Tubes provided are sized perfectly for non-stinging species like Red Mason bees (Osmia bicornis), Blue Mason bees, (Osmia caerulescens) and Wood-carving Leafcutter bees, (Megachile ligniseca) - so there's no need to worry about getting in close!
30 x Standard Nesting Tubes are also included.
