Our precious pollinators need somewhere safe to lay their eggs. Your bee nester provides the perfect place for the female bees to construct their egg cells, which develop into bee larvae and finally emerge in Spring as the new generation of bees.
Hang the Bee Nester in a sheltered spot in your garden. A good spot should have nectar plants and a water source nearby once your nester is filled using the perforated lid as a predator guard to protect the open ends of the card nesting tubes over winter.

Field Guide - Bees
Produced in conjunction with the invertebrate conservation charity Bug life, this much requested new 8-page chart shows 28 species of bee. Most of which can be commonly found flying in domestic gardens.
The ‘Big Six’ bumblebees, the chart includes representatives of mining bees, cavity-nesting bees and cuckoo bees. Silhouettes next to each image show the typical life-size for each species. Text on the reverse side includes a table, full cross-referencing to the images, which gives further information on flight periods, distribution of each species in Britain, and useful pointers to help distinguish between similar-looking species.
This chart is part of the FSC’s range of fold-out charts, designed to help users identify a wide range of plants and animals. Clear colour illustrations and text by experts in the subject make these valuable resources for all age groups. Each chart is laminated to make it shower-proof and robust for use outdoors. The definitive guide helps identify some of the main species of social and solitary bees in the UK.
