Swiss Alps Bee House (491575465), Bird Feeders, Bee Houses & Butterfly Habitats | bambeco
Help friendly bee populations thrive. Native bees make their homes in preexisting insect holes and woodpecker drillings, so they’re naturally drawn to the bamboo tubes in this charming house designed to resemble a home in the Swiss Alps. Once a female bee establishes her home, she’ll lay her eggs, fill the tubes with nourishment and seal off the entrance so her young can grow.About 30% of the human food supply, and 90% of wild plants, depend on bees for pollination—the majority of which are native bees. A single native bee can pollinate several thousand blooms each day. Because they’re focused on pollination—they don’t produce honey or beeswax—native bees are not aggressive and make friendly neighbors!Handcrafted from FSC® certified wood and bamboo, this bee house is sealed with a nontoxic, water-based finish. This is our largest bee house and includes a butterfly slot at the top. By providing shelter for bees, you’re helping to conserve and restore native populations of these fantastic, friendly, super pollinators.

What a wonderful idea to help save our pollinators.

I just bought this today and my husband is attaching it to a four by four in the center of our Lavender garden. We usually have heaps of bees in this garden and we are hoping a Queen bee comes along and is inspired by your design. :) It will sit 6-7' above the garden with a nice little mud hole below. We are very excited to watch the progress throughout the Summer.

Q: I just purchased one at Christmas. I live in NE Texas where weather can change from 70 one to 45 the next. Most year round we remain warm and humid. Where is a good place to hang it and what time of the year?

The best time of the year is Spring, mid March is recommended. These can be hung or can sit flat. Because bees usually do not lay their eggs near other wildlife, we recommend sitting the bee house or hanging it somewhere other than a tree.
