Native Bee Shelter with Tubes
The Native Bee Nesting Shelter measures 12.0" Long, 9.25" Tall and 7.5" Wide, and includes 200 closed-end paper nesting tubes, which are 100% U.S. Made in Michigan. The paper tubes are 6" long and packed in a range of diameters (6,7 and 8mm), to accommodate a variety of native bee species. (Refill tubes are available and ship year-round.)
Also included is a stainless steel hanging loop (not attached) and directions for preparing and maintaining your native bee house (download pdf). To increase the weather resistance and to ensure long viability, the Native Bee Nesting Shelter should be treated with mineral oil or painted with latex based paint.
Environmental stresses are pushing many of our native pollinators to the edge of ecological collapse. The affects of habitat loss, fragmentation, alien species, climate change and pesticide use are negatively impacting pollinators in substantial and rapidly increasing ways. Your efforts can help to slow these trends by joining the movement to Bring Back The Pollinators. Additional resources regarding native pollinators can be found through the Xerces Society for Invertebrate Conservation website at xerces.org
You can begin helping pollinators right away by conserving native habitat, gardening with native plant species, avoiding pesticide use, and by providing native bees with secure nesting sites. Whether setting up dedicated bee houses or simply leaving open soil and deadfall for bees, your assistance in fostering nesting habitat is key to curbing the decline of native pollinators.
