Sustainable and Re-useable!
Wooden nesting trays made from local hardwood- Alder.
Entrance fronts are burned to assist bees finding their nests.
Place nesting stack inside a bee home to protect nest from wind and rain.
Face bee home eastwards for early morning warmth.
In the fall cocoons are harvested and nests washed free of debris and pests. Nests are re-useable after cleaning and drying.
Make sure nests are dry when stored. Moisture will mold trays and make it less attractive to bees in the spring.
