The bee box - space-saving, efficient, resource-saving
With the purchase of the bee can you ensure that ...
a used can, plastic bottle and bottle cap can be reused
around 70 wild bees can find a place to lay their eggs
Data and facts about the bee can:
Nest tubes made of reeds, bamboo, branches and wood
Dimensions: approx. 10x12 cm (other sizes gladly on request)
Location: somewhat protected from wind and rain - it does not have to be windless and completely dry. The installation on a tree, on the fence or balcony is quite possible
Orientation: Ideally the opening to the south-east. Small deviations are possible, but do not align the opening to the west, as the wind usually blows from this direction
Simple and quick assembly, just hang it on a tree with a cord
Very space-saving. There is also a suitable place for the bee box on a small balcony
Insect hotels are actually not hotels, but breeding chambers. After all, the bees don't come to sleep - and they don't have to pay rent.
There are over 550 different wild bees in Germany. If you manage to keep a close eye on the bees in your bee box, you may find out which one it is. Have a look at "Wild Bee Identification Key"
