Log Cabin Wooden Bee House
Our log cabin house gives you the chance to help provide bee populations with a safe habitat for nesting and laying eggs. Crafted from FSC certified wood, the habitat is sealed with a non-toxic, water-based finish. This piece is designed to mimic the insect holes and woodpecker drillings that native bees are naturally drawn to. Hang the habitat 5 to 7 feet high on a wall or fence that receives morning sunlight and is close to native plants and flowers.Create a moist patch of soil near the house so bees have mud to seal off the tubes and protect their eggs. In late autumn, store bee house (with cocooned larvae inside) in an outdoor shed or cool, covered location for winter. Do not store inside your house. In early spring, return the habitat to its original location so the cycle can continue. Once new bees hatch, clean out tubes to get ready for the next seasonâ€™s offspring. Itâ€™s important to keep the bee house clean to prevent mites and pathogens from building up. Make sure all bees have been removed from the habitat before cleaning. Use a pipe cleaner or bottle brush to remove mud and debris from the tubes. Rinse the tubes with running water (do not use a jet sprayer). Once rinsed, let the habitat air dry.
