Who Needs a Hive?
From the Hundred Acre Wood to cereal box mascots, the buzz is all about honeybees. But the lesser-known mason bee is a solitary superstar that can pollinate about 100 times more plants than the average honeybee worker. Welcome these friendly, industrious pollinators with this interactive house made from an upcycled beer bottle. Inside, a bundle of paper nesting tubes invites individual bees to move in, start a family, furnish their new home with mud "mortar," and happily pollinate your plants. The repurposed bottle protects these bee condos from the elements, while the wool felt hanger adds homespun appeal to the compact apiary. Instructions included. Handmade by beer and bee-loving artisans in Idaho.
