Bumble Bee Nester Kit
The Bumble Bee Nester ensures a dry and safe space for the bees and is a fantastic educational tool.
It is constructed from thick durable timber (Cedar/Larch/Alder) and recycled plastic from agricultural sources. The overhanging roof can be opened to reveal an internal and removable viewing window. Vent holes are provided for good air flow. A back timber strap is incorporated to allow the nester to be fixed in an elevated location (up to 2 metres high). The front elevation features a combination of white, yellow and blue colours which our research indicates acts as an attractor to queen bumble bees.
Nest material, instructions and excellent Bumble Bee Guide are included.

"Bee populations are in sharp decline due to a number of factors, including climate change, habitat loss and changing farming practices. Bees are one of the best pollinators - vital for the pollination of around 80% of our varieties of fruit and vegetables. We need to do all we can to help, for their sakes and our own, including providing them with a safe and dry place to live."
