Provide bees with a safe place to call home
What is it?
These mason bee tubes are clean drilled to make them the perfect habitats for mason and leafcutter bees. Ideal for use as a shelter or during the winter months, bees will lay their eggs in these tubes, keeping the vital population alive.
How does it help?
We all know how critically important bees are to the environment — mason bees are excellent pollinators, keeping our trees, shrubs, flowers, fruit and veg thriving. These tubes are a safe habitat for bees, where they can lay eggs and stay safe in extreme weather. They attract a wide diversity of bees to your garden, providing a home for one of our most important insects.
The tubes come in a range of widths from 5mm up to 15mm, with the middle sizes between 6mm and 12mm being best for breeding solitary bees. From March to August, the mason and leafcutter bees will lay eggs in the tubes. Keep them well-insulated throughout the winter and the bees will emerge the following spring.
