Chapelwood Rustic FSC Bee Box

This Chapelwood FSC Bee Box with a beautiful rustic finish has been specially designed to provide a safe habitat for bees. The tubes are just the right size for masonry or leaf cutter bees. These bees do not swarm so there would only be a few of them using the box. The bees lay an egg in a tube, put balls of pollen with it and then stop up the end of the tube with leaves or mud and in the spring the young adult eats its way out and the cycle starts over.

Do not be surprised if other garden insects use this box at the same time. Ladybirds in particular may happily use the bottom half of the box. They provide a wonderful, natural garden pest removal service by helping to get rid of aphids and other unwanted bugs.

  • Strong, durable construction
  • Key style hanging mechanism

    This bee box is made from FSC wood, so you are ensured it comes from well-managed forests, sustaining not only the environment but also its local population. It offers excellent insulation properties and naturally resists water damage, warping and rotting.

    Dimensions: 16 x 18 x 24cm high
