Details

An instant bee hotel set that provides missing nesting sites for wild hole-nesting bees. Includes two pheromone attractant sprays that attract bee species in the mason and leafcutter bee groups.

Through our research and experience, we design nesting holes to be the right size and diameter for optimal bee health.

  • Wild bees come in a variety of sizes and need a nesting hole that is just the right size for them.
  • Carpenter bees prefer to chew their way through pithy stems (Ceratina spp) or solid wood (Xylocopa spp).
  • Natural reeds, BeeTubes, and pithy stems are all easy to open for cocoon harvest.
  • Drilled blocks of wood and bamboo do not allow you to inspect your bee's health.

Spring and Summer Wild Bee Motel Includes:

  • Chalet Bee House: 10" H x 10" W x 8 1/2" D
  • InvitaBee pheromone attractants for both mason and leafcutter bees
  • 20 BeeTubes - size 4mm
  • 25 BeeTubes - size 6mm
  • 25 BeeTubes - size 8mm
  • 20 Natural Reeds - size 6mm
  • 20 Natural Reeds - size 8mm
  • 2 solid wood boards for carpenter bees

Instructions

Install the bee house 5-7' high on S-SE facing wall or fence.

When daytime temperatures consistently drop below 60F and bee activity stops in the early fall, remove natural reeds, BeeTubes, and pithy stems. Place into a protective fine mesh bag like the BeeGuard Bag and store with holes facing up. Store over the winter in an unheated garage or shed. 

Large carpenter bees (Xylocopa spp) will hibernate in their solid wood boards. These large, long-living bees are capable of cleaning out and reusing their nesting tunnels.
