Bumblebee Mini Nest Box

Bumblebee Mini Nest Box is perfect for encourage the nesting of bumblebees in your garden. Made from solid FSC certified timber, it has a sturdy construction and provides a nice, dry home for bumblebees. The sliding lid is made of recycled agricultural plastic, allowing observation of the colony. The Queen bumblebee spends her winter alone underground. When she emerges in Springtime she is looking for a new home in which to start her new bumblebee colony. The front of the bumblebee nester features a bright yellow surface in contrast with the dark nesting hole and entrance ramp. Queen bumblebees often make their colony after a mouse has nested. So if you attract a mouse in year one, this is good news and will make the box more attractive to a queen bumblebee in year 2. Be sure to leave the mouse nest in place.
