“When people think of bees, they think of honeybees, but there are over 250 species of wild bee which are absolutely essential to the pollination our flowers,fruit and vegetables. Their natural habitats are declining, so by providing them with safe and comfortable places to nest in means we can better help them to help us”
The Wild Bee Boxes, made in Britain, have 2 unique large viewing panels that allow you to safely follow the life-cycle of the bees with minimal disturbance to the animals. This makes the nest boxes ideal for schools, homes and environment centres.
