Description


By purchasing a bee barn you will give sanctuary and protection, to future generations of the UK's most lovely and helpful insects, plus your Bee Barn looks brilliantly rustic. Everyone knows bumble bees and honeybees, yet few are aware of another type of bee named the Solitary Bee. As this name suggests, solitary bees spend their lives alone, they have no sting, they have no queen to protect them, and they do not produce honey. As a result they are the gentlest of creatures with a very important role in nature because these bees are the unsurpassed masters of pollination. (One study in Arkansas in the USA stated these bees are responsible for the pollination of 80% of food crops and flowers in this one US state). Solitary bees need tubes to lay their eggs, to prevent wasps eating the pupae and this is where your Bee Barn comes in. Designed by entomologists, your Bee Barn offers the maximum protection for the developing young solitary bee. No need to worry about cleaning out each year either, as the female bee will do this before laying her eggs. You will find other useful insects such as Lacewings and Ladybirds also finding a home in your Bee Barn. Hang your Bee Barn in a south or south-east facing aspect to receive the morning sun.
