Introduce a live bumble bee colony to your garden and watch your garden explode with blossom as a result!
Introduce and encourage a bumble bee pollination on your property with the Bumble Bee Abode and watch the increase of your yields and crop sizes. The Bumble Bee Abode provides a nesting habitat for bumble bees which in turn will increase pollination of fruit trees, vegetable and flower gardens.
Surrounding terrain should be well-drained, protected from excessive winds, shade or heat, and a site against a tree or building helps the bee’s orientation. Least successful locations are facing south or placed underneath pine trees.
Raise the bumble bee abode off the ground about 1” using stones or a couple of small pieces of treated timber. Try sowing some Oderings Wildflower Seed Mix nearby to help encourage birds, bees, butterflies and other beneficial insects.
No assembly required. Well insulated design protects nesting bees from overheating. Vents around base provide air flow. Handmade from quality timber sourced from local, sustainable managed forest plantations.
Please note: The Bumble Bee Abode is designed specifically to house the Bumble Bee Colony. A bee colony should be housed in the Abode to protect from the environment.
