Details

Less-than-perfect Leafcutter bee nesting trays that are great for raising leafcutter bees!

  • When our wood is milled, we ask for less expensive wood with branch holes and marks. Which results in some less-than-perfect trays. About 90% of the holes are still viable and the bees don't mind, it is the humans who demand perfection!
  • 7 slightly less-than-perfect wood trays designed to stack upon each other, 78 holes that are each 1/4" (6mm) in diameter.
  • Designed for about 150 leafcutter cocoons.
  • Wood is a natural habitat for leafcutter bees and provides insulation as well as moisture control. Wood has a natural wicking effect that pulls moisture from the wet pollen & leaf mass.
  • The nesting trays are easy to open to clean and reassemble. Important during spring harvest.
  • These rugged nesting trays are re-usable which reduces year-to-year costs.
  • Each tray has side notches that lock into neighboring trays, retain alignment, and help block pests from entering on the side. Depending on the tray, some notches might not have perfect closure with the tray above or below.
  • The front of the wood trays are burnished with a torch to be darker to increase the heat for morning flight of the bees.
  • Each block includes two bands to hold trays tightly together.
  • A removable cardboard back panel assists the leafcutter bees by keeping their holes predator-resistant.
  • Tray weighs 0.8 lbs and is 6" wide x 3 1/2" tall x 6" deep

Optional Leafcutter InvitaBee! Leafcutter bees tend to naturally disperse. Crown Bees has developed a pheromone that has shown to attract more leafcutter bees to nest than disperse. For your success, we strongly encourage you to try this attractant out.
