The Conservation Solitary Beehive is a high quality, robust hive that is suitable for conservation and mitigation projects, orchard and fruit growers, landscapers as well as private gardeners. This solitary beehive is constructed from solid FSC timber providing space for up to 1000 bee cells. The hinged woodpecker guard on the front of the bee hive helps keep the larvae out of reach of these predators.
This hive incorporates three different solitary bee nesting systems into one. Stackable trays are located on either side of the of the hive, these are secured with retractable threaded screws accessed via the lifting lid. These trays allow larvae inspection for the purpose of monitoring . The precision drilled block provides maximum insulation for the overwintering larvae of solitary bees. Finally, nesting tubes are provided by 8mm cardboard tubes which are designed to be replaced annually to prevent parasite build up.
