Bambeco Mason Bee Barn House Large Bee Hive Garden Nesting Box

Bambeco Mason Bee Barn House Large Bee Hive Garden Nesting Box

 

The mason bee barn is hand-crafted from 100% FSC® (Forest Stewardship Council) solid pine wood and bamboo from well managed forest and is sealed with a nontoxic, water-based finish. It attracts non-stinging native bees that are not aggressive. Native bees do not produce honey or beeswax as their sole focus is to pollinate, making them friendly. Once a native female bee establishes her home in this bee barn, she will lay her eggs, filling the tubes with nourishment and seal off the entrance so her young can safely grow. The native bee lifespan is a single season so her young are next seasons pollinators who help create our food supply and make our gardens beautiful.
