A bee house provides the bees and nesting holes protection from rain, wind, and when necessary, birds.

Bee houses keep the nesting holes dry with a roof that is at least 3” longer than the nesting holes. Bee houses should also offer a space for bees to emerge from their cocoons. Crown Bees offer a variety of bee house sizes and styles to satisfy your aesthetics and budget.

  • All joints are glued for a longer lasting house and to keep the house weather resistant.
  • Keyhole slot provides a quick installation and easy removal for winter storage, extending the life of the bee house.
