Additional Information


The Chalet Solitary Bee House can either be hung or sat on any flat surface preferably facing the early morning sun. It can be easily mounted to wall or secure structure using a nail or screw and then insert into keyhole in back of Chalet.  Suggested heigth to hang your Chalet would be between 5-7 feet above the ground to get your house away from pests.  Locate the Chalet within 100 - 300 ft. of  their pollen source.  Important too is mud availability for your bees near the house.  Crown highly recommends that you dig a hole in the ground near where you set up your house so the females bees can successfully find mud.  Good mud is crucial to sucessful Mason Bee raising!



What type of nesting materials will my Chalet hold?  The Chalet house can use and hold any of the following; 120 Easytear tubes, inserts, 100 reeds, 48-hole Spring Mason Bee tray, 78-hole Summer Leafcutter wood trays or a combination of tubes/reeds can all be used in this house.  

Can the Chalet be hung?  Yes using the keyhole in the back with a screw or nail

 Why is it important where I set up my bee house?  Early morning sun will get your bees up and moving once they are warm enough to fly.  Giving your bees early morning sun will give them the most amount of time to get their work done.
