    Encourage bumble bee queens to establish a healthy colony and watch your garden explode with blossom as a result!


    Please note:  This is the new and improved 2018 version of the The Nesting Box. It is designed to attract a Queen who will create a new colony. 


    Alongside Dr. Donovan, Creative Woodcraft has designed, developed and patented a nesting box that
    has proven to provide an increased uptake rate in comparison to traditional nesting box designs.
    During the last five years, Dr. Donovan’s research has shown our newly-developed nesting box to have
    a 90 percent uptake rate - potentially three-times greater than that of the existing nesting boxes.


    In New Zealand, the recorded uptake rate of the original nesting boxes have been approximately 30
    percent, whereas in other countries, the uptake has been significantly lower.


    Unlike the small diameter hole seen on the traditional nesting boxes, the new and improved nesting
    box boasts a slotted front design, which enables far greater and easier access to the habitat - hence
    the increased uptake percentage.


    Positioning our newly-designed nesting box in close proximity to a live bumblebee colony (available
    separately for purchase), will further encourage the emerging queens to take up residence in your new
    nesting box - extending both the pollination window and benefits.


    Placing our newly-designed nesting box, or boxes, in suitable locations around the garden will provide
    a greater opportunity for searching bumblebee queens to take up residence in your garden.


    Handmade from quality timber sourced from local, sustainable managed forest plantations.
