WHY A BEE NEST?
Native solitary bees do not produce honey, they do not have a queen, nor do they live in a
hive. This means they do not have anything to protect, and they will retreat rather than
attack. Solitary bees are also vastly better pollinators than the non-native honey bees;
however they too are experiencing declining numbers. Installing a solitary pollen bee nest
is an easy way to do your part; it will provide native cavity nesting bees with a safe
environment in which to lay their eggs. The bees that lay their eggs in the nest only live for
6 weeks, and the new generation will emerge after 12 months. One nest has the potential to
yield 100 new bees!
An easy and safe way to help native bees.
