Mason Bee Bottle

Paper tubes invite solitary bees to move in and help pollinate your plants.

$30.00

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.

Notes
Hang your Mason Bee Bottle outside at about 6-8 feet off the ground. Make sure the space is protected from rain, facing south or southeast for maximum sun exposure, and close to a nearby springtime mud source and plenty of blossoms. In late fall, remove your Bee Bottle and store in a dark, unheated location for the duration of the winter incubation period. Come spring, restore Bee Bottle to original location and wait for bees to emerge and pollinate your garden!

        It is about the size of one of the 16 oz. Tervis cup, for a size reference. Not too big, but also not tiny.

              My mother loves bees- the animals themselves and anything with its symbol/picture. So, I bought this for her for Mother's Day. Because of certain unforeseen circumstances, I have not given it to her. However, I've opened the package, and I think it's really cool. I know she'll love it.
