Help ensure you get bumper crops of fruit and vegetables by encouraging pollinating insects using this attractive and practical bee log. It's for the red mason bee and the megachile bee (leaf cutter bee), neither of which sting, so are safe around children and pets. Solitary bees are 70% more efficient at pollinating than honeybees, therefore this can help increase the fruit and vegetable yield in the garden. It can be hung from a tree or any other garden structure using the seagrass ropes supplied and left outside all year, where it will provide the protection from frost that the bees need over winter. Position in a warm place near nectar sources to catch the morning sun. Ideally 3ft to 7ft high (up to 3 metres).
Measurements:
16cm x 16cm

    Comments about Pollinating bee log:

    I purchased the bee log about 2-3 weeks ago. It looks great and has already attracted lots of comments and questions about its purpose. Today I've noticed that several cells were already closed and then saw a busy bee at work myself. Works absolutely brilliantly and bees have found it very quickly too! Would recommend to anyone with a bee-friendly garden.

        Comments about Pollinating bee log:

        Hung on patio and within a few months suddenly noticed the delightful low summery lazy hum of bees and realised every tube was completely occupied and covered with mud. Thoroughly recommend- works but also looks attractive and easy to hang up.
