The MiniBug MSBH1 Solitary Bee Hive is a fun and interactive habitat that attracts safe, children-friendly and fascinating solitary bees. Be fascinated as the bees fill the tubes with their offspring and cover the ends of the tubes with mud or leaves ready to hatch out next Spring. These important pollinators are so friendly that all the family can safely watch them coming and going into the habitat at close quarters with little risk of being stung. A mini version of the larger Solitary Bee Hive (SBH1), it is constructed from solid FSC timber for durability. The MiniBug Solitary Bee House is supplied in a gift box and makes an ideal present for children or grown up wildlife enthusiasts and gardeners. Siting Site in a sheltered spot close to vegetation using back hanger, preferably in a location to catch the morning sun. Chances of the habitat being used can be increased by planting a variety of nectar rich flowers and plants in the garden around the house. This product is made from durable natural timber and no treatments are required. Solitary bees like red mason bee, leafcutter bee etc plus other insects. Monitoring & Inspection Check the habitat in spring and summer for signs of use. If there is evidence that it has been used, leave any cells in the habitat as this may be eggs/larvae. These will remain in the habitat through the winter and new insects will emerge in the spring. Maintenance This product is manufactured from natural durable timber and does not require any coatings. If it has been used, you may wish to protect the occupants from frost by covering product or taking into shed. Do not take into a heated environment as cells/pupae may develop/emerge prematurely. What Species Might Use My Nest Box? A wide variety of invertebrates and other insects including solitary bees, ladybirds, spiders etc. Additional Information There are 4 different insect habitats to collect in the minibug range. These products are for wild creatures and as such, you should not expect immediate habitation. We suggest you carefully read the supplied instructions for siting and provide this product in a suitable habitat for the target species. The product can then be re-visited 6 - 12 months later, or in the appropriate season, to see if it is being used. If after 24 months the product has not been used, it may be worth choosing an alternative location to site it and/or look to see what improvements you can make to provide a suitable environment for your target species (flowers, woodpiles, rough areas of garden etc) Because many species of creature are constantly seeking refuge and safe nesting sites, you may find that an unexpected species is using your product - this is part of nature and all species should be welcomed as part of your wildlife garden
