The Bumblebee or Small Mammal Nest Box is constructed from thick, durable FSC timber, strongly jointed to provide a dry home for bumblebees. Bumblebees are in decline but are essential pollinators for the garden. The sliding lid is made of recycled agricultural plastic and allows you to look inside the box to observe the colony. The front of the nest box is painted using special paint, designed to attract queen bumblebees, and has a small access ramp. Complete with nesting material made from chopped meadow hay bedding, instructions and a guide to bumblebees. Bumblebee nest boxes are designed to attract mice or other small mammals in the first instance, and then the bumblebees are drawn to the mouse nest. Be sure to leave the mouse nest in place.
Materials: FSC timber and recycled agricultural plastic
