Deluxe bumblebee nest box, designed, developed and made in NW England.
It nice to see there are still some manufacturers left in England! The company produce quality products and are based in NW England, reasons why I use them and not have my products manufactured abroad!
After studying the research papers, testing various boxes and other trials, using my past experiences of bumblebee nest boxes, I and the manufacture’s designer discussed the basic outlay and design of the nest box. I drew some designs, described what requirements were needed and we took it from there. The discussions are translated into measurements which are fed into a computer driven wood cutter for precise cutting. This shows the front and the landing platforms.
The wax moth box is attached to the front of the bumblebee nest box, designed to attract wax moths inside it and away from the bumblebee nest entrance.
After the cutting and drilling, comes the screwing and glueing.
One of a number of process that require hand finishing at the manufacture’s and at Nurturing Nature’s office.
