A unique, real, functioning wildlife habitat specifically designed for children and to attract beneficial insects to the garden for learning, study, or simply for the benefits of plant pollination and pest control.
The MiniBug Solitary Bee House is a natural habitat for non-swarming solitary bees.
Based upon the best selling solitary beehive and made from naturally durable FSC Cedar, this unique solitary bee house is specifically designed to attract non-swarming bees like the Red Mason Bee.
These types of bees do not swarm, are gregarious and safe around children and pets.
The bees are naturally attracted to holes in wood and the MiniBug Solitary Beehive provides habitat that has become harder to find in modern gardens.
