Solitary Bee Hive

This custom wood "condo" invites solitary pollinators to move in and decorate with mud "mortar."

$40.00

Masons Lodge

From the Hundred Acre Wood to cereal box mascots, the buzz is all about honeybees. But lesser-known pollinators like mason bees are solitary superstars that can pollinate about 100 times more plants than the average honeybee worker. Welcome friendly, industrious pollinators such as mason and leafcutter bees with this interactive house. Made from sustainably sourced, FSC-certified wood, the stacked "floors" of the house feature openings inviting individual bees like masons who furnish their homes with mud "mortar." Simply unscrew the wing nuts at the bottom to separate the floors for cleaning or inspection (in late fall or winter when you won't disturb the residents). This custom condo for beneficial buzzers provides protection and an ideal home to raise baby bees. Hang in a sunny spot facing southeast to catch morning sun. Full instructions included. Designed in the UK by beekeeper and conservationist Norman Sellers. Made in China.

              I bought this adorable, solid little house for Mason bees and any other little native pollinators. So far no takers, - I might have put it out a little late in the season - but they'll bee there soon!
