Highrise Bee House (491568176), Bird Feeders, Bee Houses & Butterfly Habitats | bambeco
Help friendly bee populations thrive. About 30% of the human food supply and 90% of wild plants depend on pollination from bees, the majority of which are native bees. In fact, a native bee can pollinate several thousand blooms per day. Because their sole focus is pollination, they do not produce honey or beeswax – and native bees make friendly neighbors, as they are not aggressive! About 140 species of native bees make their homes in preexisting insect holes and woodpecker drillings, so they’re naturally drawn to the bamboo tubes in this bee house. Once a female bee establishes her home, she will lay her eggs, fill the tubes with nourishment and seal off the entrance so her young can safely grow. Handcrafted from FSC® certified wood and bamboo, this bee house is sealed with a nontoxic, water-based finish. By providing shelter for bees, you’re helping to conserve and restore native populations of these fantastic, friendly, super pollinators.

Here's you new home!

Just 3 days after hanging out first bee house we had bees! I left soft mud nearby as suggested and they used it. We liked it so much that we ordered 2 more!

Love it

I ordered one for myself and a few extra for gift giving. Love it! Such a cute little work of art and it is great for the bees who need all of the help that we can give them!

Fun bee house
By: Susan Howe, Wednesday, January 25, 2017

Have yet to set it up for the bees since it's winter here in MA. Bought 2 more as gifts for family during the year... As Christmas gifts, a great success and fun trying to guess what they were!

I purchased a number of the different bee houses for gifts this Christmas for friends and family who garden. They seem to love them :)

The Perfect Pollinators home
By: Lee, Thursday, December 01, 2016

The solitary bees are making nests in our window sills on our home, so I decided to help them out and purchase them their own home. I also purchased some as gifts for my friends that are gardeners. Super cute and nicely made. We have leaf cutter bees and mason bees that I hope will use this has there new home.

Bee House

I picked one of these up at a chain gardening center in my area and it was a conversation piece at my daughters graduation party this summer. I decided to order one for our work gift exchange this Christmas. It is a really cool concept!

Gets the job done
By: Seth, Sunday, August 07, 2016

The bee house is a nice idea to pollinate plants. The bee house is a very attractive addition to my garden area. It arrived in good condition, but I did have to re-glue a couple of tubes. There are plenty of good bamboo shoots for the bees to make their home in. I look forward to next season with increased pollination.

Well constructed & attractive in the yard
By: Nick, Sunday, June 19, 2016

Bought two of these to place in my yard - one hangs from a tree limb and the other is attached to my wooden fence. Well made and looks good. Haven't seen any bees yet but it has only been 2-3 weeks.

Interesting garden art
By: Susan, Saturday, June 11, 2016

I don't know if the bees will actually use this "house", but I liked it for the sculptural look. I placed it where the bees should optimally find it and hope they do, but otherwise it looks great as a piece of garden art.

Love the look

I love the Bee house, it looks great even though I have get to see bees in it.

FAQ

Ask a Question
Q: Do bees just arrive randomly and set up housekeeping, or must you order bees and install them to get it started?

Thank you for your question! The bees will arrive naturally, you do not need to order bees.

Q: will the bees turn the bee house into a honey comb?

No.

Q: Where should it be hung? Facing which direction?

Bee houses should be placed on a sunny, warm morning wall and 5 to 7 feet above the ground.

Q: Does this turn in to a hive? I'm still not sure what the product is.

The Highrise Bee House is intended to be a haven for friendly garden bees which are solitary, not honeybees which live in colonies. This bee house provides a safe place for the gentle bees to lay their eggs. Friendly garden bees are terrific pollinators!

Q: Do I have to replace the tubes each year or clean them out?

They can just be cleaned out. They do not need to be replaced.
