The Hive is Alive

The local bees will find it hard to resist taking up residence in this handcrafted and environmentally friendly beehive, and they'll quickly set up shop in its natural nesting tubes. Designed to imitate the natural wood preferred by the Mason Bee (a variety that is non-aggressive and excellent pollinators), this habitat gives the little buzzers a protected place to store their larvae and helps support the endangered bee population. The best part? Sit back and enjoy these humming pollinators as they provide you and your backyard guests with hours of peaceful entertainment for years to come. Handmade by Jo-Anne & Gerald Warren in Canada.

Jo-Anne & Gerald Warren

With a name like Amaranth, a mythical flower that is said to never fade, Jo-Anne & Gerald Warren's stoneware has a lot to live up to. Fortunately, it does, both in terms of beauty and durability. Using a firing process that can exceed 2000 degrees, Amaranth products are built to last, withstanding all elements and seasons, yet maintaining their signature charm. The Warren's make sure all their handmade stoneware is made in an environmentally friendly fashion and hope you take as much pleasure in their art as they do in exploring new ways to innovate current standards. collection

        We have not set this Bee House up yet but the quality of the product was apparent from first looking at it, and the instruction booklet was simple and clear. Very much looking forward to putting it up in the Spring for bees to enjoy!

        Unique and Fun

        • Easy To Set Up

        Cons

        • Not Squirrel Proof

        Best Uses

        • In The Lawn
        • Year Round

        Comments about BEE HOUSE:

        First of all, this gift came very securely packaged! It was in a box packed FULL of bubble wrap and then placed inside another box. I wasn't 100% sure what to expect when my husband opened, but this is a really nice piece that almost feel ceramic. It's actually really beautiful to look at and even more importantly sturdy.

        It comes with a really helpful little booklet that talks about the type of bees the home will suit (mason bees if anyone is wondering, which are the friendliest kind). My husband did some additional research and it sounds like you put it out in the early Spring and local bees will be attracted to it's design and build nests that then won't hatch until NEXT spring. It's a patience game, but I also think it will be really exciting.

        The only downside to this item - I thought there were be more of a protector plate of some sort that keep the tubes in. We have LOTS of squirrels and birds in our neighborhood, and apparently these types of bees are like candy to birds and I'm sure our more than curious squirrels would be capable of pulling out all the nesting tubes. We plan on remedying this by hopefully hanging it in a place the squirrel can't reach, and putting a little chicken wire around the front to keep the birds out.

        Long story short, my bee fascinated husband LOVE this and it's a great unique gift.

            Comments about BEE HOUSE:

            My parent's house is so filled with stuff I need to avoid buying them anything "decorative" which meant that I needed to get creative. The second I saw this, I knew it was for them. They live in a hot city that is known for all of it's farming, so I figured it would be perfect for them! The only downside I really noticed was that the little tubes aren't attached in any way, so when it's tipped down they all fall out. Hopefully this won't be a problem when they attach it to the side of their house. Other then that, the "stump" is very durable and the hook is heavy duty- I'm not worried about it randomly falling off. Can't wait to see their faces when they open it!

              Many people think of bird houses when they think about garden decor that doubles as a happy home for wildlife, but bees need love too! Would you help them get cozy in your back yard?
