Description
  • Wooden bee hotel
  • Single unit design with colourful pitched roof 
  • A safe nesting & breeding structure for solitary bees
  • A safe place for young solitary bees to grow to maturity 
  • Holes of various sizes mimic those found in the wild
  • Provides access for different varieties of solitary bees
  • Quick & easy to hang
  • Does not attract honey bee colonies 
  • A great way to support the threatened bee population
  • Attracts docile, gentle pollinators to your garden

Did you know? There are close to 1000 solitary bee species in South Africa. Unlike honey bees, they don’t rely on a Queen for breeding; they live independently and need their own private space to breed. Most solitary bee species are stingless, and they tend to be very passive and gentle.

How it works:

  • A female solitary bee selects a hole of the right size & depth to be her breeding nest
  • From her chosen nest, the female will fly back & forth in your garden to collect pollen & nectar
  • She will mix the pollen & nectar into a paste & place it at the back of the hole
  • She will lay her eggs close to this mixture, to give her young the nourishment they need
  • After “filling the pantry” & laying her eggs, she will seal up the hole with various natural materials, then fly off
  • The young bees will grow up safely in the nest, feeding on the pollen & nectar mix until they’re old enough to break through the sealed door & fly off
  • Congratulations you’ve helped a new generation of bees to flourish into adulthood!

I bought this for myself but couldn't find an appropriate place to hang it (out of direct sunshine and rain) - so I gave it to a friend and she was over the moon! Can't wait to get her feedback on bee activity :)

I bought one of these at the Shongweni Market. I hung it up outside my front door and within 2 weeks I was watching a variety of solitary bees build their nests as well as wasps and spiders try get a quick meal. Fascinating to see!

So cute! Love the design and the little added bags on the front. Still awaiting some guests but it's been great having my toddler run to check each day!
