Bee & Insect Hotels
Design "Driftwood Decor"
Design "Bamboo & Wood"
Bee hotels provide shelter for solitary bees, lacewings and other insects for nesting and hibernating. Solitary bees help to pollinate flowers, fruits, and that is why bee hotels are a very useful tool for gardeners.
All wood and bamboo used to fill the bee hotels are collected locally or are upcycled. The bee hotel boxes are made with weather-resistant red or aromatic cedar. While the interior of the bee hotels is untreated, the exterior is finished with a mixture of mineral oil and bees wax. Hangers are provided on the back. The wood will age over time to beautiful gray shades. All bee hotels are made as one of a kind.
Measurements: vary (the "regular" height is between 10"-16", but can be 8"-36", depth varies between 4.5" and 6 ")
