Artisan Bee Hotel - Bali Island Range

£34.99
SKU: ARTBEE

Introducing the Artisan Bee Hotel from the beautiful Bali Range, handmade and hand-painted by Balinese artisans in a genuinely authentic Indonesian style. The entire range is constructed using sustainably sourced timber and has been lovingly hand-painted using a dot painting technique.

The Artisan Bee Hotel creates a habitat for many solitary bee species to lay the next generation of larvae and provides shelter during bad weather. Always a friend to the gardener, attracting solitary bees to the garden is safe and beneficial for pollinating flowers, fruit and vegetables. Our Artisan Bee Hotels are handcrafted in Bali, Indonesia, from sustainably sourced, durable timber using traditional painting techniques to produce a unique garden feature. The brightly coloured hand-painted dot design is appealing to us and will also help attract solitary bees.

The hole sizes of this habitat are precisely specified to attract non-swarming bees like the Red Mason Bee, Leafcutter Bee and other solitary bees. These friendly bees are industrious and safe around children and pets. The bees are naturally attracted to holes in wood. The Wildlife World handmade Artisan Bee Hotel provides a habitat for solitary bees that have become harder to find in modern gardens.

The Bali Range comprises three handmade products: a spacious bird nest box, a hanging bird table, and this solitary bee house. There’s truly something for everyone to add a distinctive splash of colour to their garden or outdoor space whilst helping our nation’s treasured wildlife.


Installation

Stake this Bee Hotel amongst flowers in borders or planters where bees will be drawn. Site in a sunny position facing between south to the south-east to catch some morning sun.

 

Maintenance

Wipe away any external dirt with a damp cloth, avoiding anything abrasive. You can disassemble the Bee Hotel to clean the trays once all the larvae have hatched. (The timing of this will depend on the species of solitary bee you have nesting).
