This striking mason bee house echoes the WBC honeybee hive design, popular throughout the UK! It features five stacked 8mm nesting trays underneath a peaked shingled roof to assist with rain runoff. No tubes needed—mason bees will nest right in the cavities and harvesting cocoons is as easy as gently taking the nesting blocks apart.
For optimal longevity, be sure to keep this house under an awning or cover to protect it from the elements.

These lovable pollinators are an easy and non-threatening way to break into the bee community and show your support for local ecosystems. They are dynamic at pollinating the immediate area surrounding their nests, which make them perfect for your backyard garden and fruit trees. Learn even more about mason bees here.
