Hi! We're so glad you're interested in raising solitary bees!

Solitary bees are the perfect pollinators for backyard gardens, farms, and orchards because they are gentle, easy to raise, and fun to watch. Not to mention, they are efficient cross-pollinators that can double or even triple your farm and garden yields!  As bee raisers, it's our responsibility to provide these pollinators with healthy habitats to forage and nest. So, if you install an artificial bee house, then you'll need to take the time to learn how to properly care for these incredible pollinators if you want to see healthy future generations of bees in your yard.  We know this can be a little intimidating for first-timers. Fortunately, we've got you covered!  Crown Bees has years of solitary, cavity-nesting bee-raising experience (say that five times fast!), and we love sharing our knowledge to help you BEE successful!
