Cabin Bee House Kits

Our various Spring, Summer, or dual Cabin Bee House Kits make raising gentle mason and leafcutter bees easy and fun.

Our spring mason bees and summer leafcutter bees carry pollen dry and loose and they stay close to their bee house - making them 100 times more effective pollinators. Simply set up their bee house, place out their nesting holes and bee cocoons and watch them build their nests. Raising our gentle bees takes only about two hours per year!

*The Cabin is made of wood from the Paulownia tree. Native to eastern Asia, this wood is fast-growing and can be harvested within 8-10 years. When the Paulownia tree is cut down, new shoots grow from the stumps of felled trees. This allows the root system to remain intact, which can help reduce erosion of the forested area. Additional ecological benefits include:

Paulownia is a woody nitrogen-fixing species. Meaning it can play a valuable role in agroecological systems by converting nitrogen into usable soil nutrients. This makes the species an ideal addition in areas surrounding plots of land that have been degraded by mono-crop farming.

The large flowers and leaves facilitate the absorption of carbon. According to an analysis performed by NatureBank, at maximum growth rates, an acre of mature Paulownia trees can absorb up to 90 tons of CO2 per year from the atmosphere. 

When managed responsibly, Paulownia can be a sustainable wood option where lightweight, yet strong, wood is needed (like our new Cabin). However, it's considered an invasive species in North America and should never be introduced (planted) into foreign ecosystems without a proper management system in place.
