Bee Hotels provide shelter for solitary bees, lacewings and other insects for nesting and hibernating. Bee Hotels are a very useful tool for gardeners, because the non-aggressive solitary bees help to pollinate flowers, fruits, and vegetables. They will often nest in the same area year after year. All bee hotel boxes are made with weather-resistant red cedar. The exterior is finished with a mixture of mineral oil and natural waxes. Hangers are provided on the back. The wood will age over time.
Measurements: vary (the "regular" height is between 10"-16", but can be 8"-36")
