Constructed and tested to be attractive and useful, our pollen bee nests are specifically designed to safely harbour gentle pollen bees– like mason bees and other native bees– during the most important phase of their life cycle. Built with longevity in mind, our nests are fully assembled and ready to use. The proprietary volcanic rock filler keeps the nest dry and helps protect the bees from common predators.
Solitary pollen bees will not sting! These native bees are non-aggressive and tend to retreat if disturbed. Bringing these essential pollinators to your garden is safe and natural, an easy way to protect the environment and sustain your garden plants at the same time. Wild bees have sustained huge population losses over the last few years and you can help reverse the damage.
No amount of water or fertilizer will result in a lush garden unless solitary native bees (pollen bees, like the mason bee) are there to pollinate your flowers and vegetables. Help the bees, devastated by disease and habitat loss, by giving them a safe home and you'll reap the reward of a lush and healthy garden while making a truly positive difference in your local ecosystem.
Follow the tips and supporting resources to create a pollinator garden to provide adequate nutrition for bees, Your garden will be enhanced by these efficient pollinators.
