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

    FSC Insect Conservation Study Centre

    This Insect Conservation Study Centre features 5 different study chambers and is wonderful garden feature as well as a fantastic resource for your garden. Brilliant for schools too! It is designed to combine interactivity, education and conservation, and features a range of habitats for interest throughout the year.

    Includes:
    Chamber 1: Solar Insect Attic
    This chamber features a solar light and illuminated chamber with an access door at the back to introduce lighting and twigs as moth or butterfly attractants. The solar light has an attracting effect and allows nocturnal study of insects and moths. In the simplest form, it can act as a garden light.
    Chamber 2: Over Wintering Chamber
    This is the traditional multi-insect over wintering area, which will provide insulated nooks and crannies for a wide range of insects.
    Chamber 3: Big Bug
    This area has a giant magnifying glass concealed in the front door to form the ‘big bug’ area. Insects can be temporarily housed here or, with the ports open, incoming insects can be studied. At the back, there are ‘creepy crawly’ tubes where insects can be seen through the magnifying glass viewer.
    Chamber 4: The Lacewing Chamber
    This chamber is pre-filled with natural straw and provides the ideal over wintering space for Lacewing. Alternatively, this section can be filled with bark if it is required as an over wintering area for ladybirds.
    Chamber 5: Interactive Solitary Bee Chamber
    This features removable trays for the study of developing Solitary Bees – these Bees are non-aggressive and do not swarm, so they are safe for children and pets to be around. From early Autumn, the bolt at the base can be loosened to release the trays where it is possible to observe the development of bee eggs and larvae cells.

    The Study Centre should be sited in a warm, sheltered position, such as a post, tree, or wall, ideally to catch the morning sun, and about 1 – 2.5m high.

    Maintenance should be minimal, the solar light battery (AA rechargeable) will need to be replaced annually and as the study centre is made from naturally durable FSC timber, no weather protection is needed. However, if over time you wish to preserve the natural colour, you can coat the exterior with a water-based stain or varnish.

    FSC Big Bee and Bug Biome

    The FSC Big Bee and Bug Biome is a multi-chambered retreat for beneficial garden insects with endless opportunities for insect study. It is made from solid FSC timber and the different features provide varied habitats for bees, bugs, lacewings, ladybirds and butterflies. Put a Big Insect Biome in your garden to improve plant pollination and the abundance of natural pest predators.

    Starting at the top with drilled canes and tubes is the multi-insect dormitory. This is suitable for solitary bees plus other bugs and beetles. There are two interactive pull-out inspection plugs with perspex tubes to observe solitary bee cell making behaviour. The pine cones mark the insect refuge holes that provide shelter from predators for further species such as wood wasps and earwigs.

    The swirling design of wooden holes is not only aesthetically pleasing but provides a variety of hole diameters to suit yet more solitary bee species such as leafcutter bees. The lowest chamber is the litter critter zone which can be filled with damp leaves and soil to provide a cooler zone for millipedes, centipedes and other beetle species.

    Finally in front of the litter critter zone is the insect feeding terrace with its easy-clean nectar cups for butterfly feeding. That is just the front face of the Big Insect Biome, there are glazed side panels to allow inspection and access for topping up your selected natural nesting material.
