Overview

Provide a home for one of nature's best pollinators. Of the more than 20,000 species of bees, two of the most common are the blue orchard bee and the horn-faced bee. One-half to two-thirds the size of a honey bee, these passive bees live only six to eight weeks but lay eggs in this house. The eggs remain dormant through the fall and winter, and offspring emerge in the spring to pollinate plants.

The best thing you can do to care for the wild animals in your area is to give and support their habitat. Naturescaping is a way to provide animals with natural sources of food and shelter that will not put them in danger the way a human-provided food source would. A bee house is a perfect example that will bring bees to your vicinity, but provide safe shelter.

Hang this bee house near the garden. No maintenance required.

Features & Benefits:

  • House is rough-sawn 
  • Handcrafted from 1" white pine for insulation and durability
  • Mounting hardware not included (2/1-1/2" wood screws recommended)
  • No maintenance required
  • Made in the USA

About Coveside Conservation:

All wildlife nests / boxes are correct in every detail for each species and come with species specific literature and mounting instructions.

All of our nest boxes are crafted of custom milled, premium grade, sustainably grown, Eastern white pine, from Robbins Lumber mill in Maine. Robbins Lumber is a leader in responsible forestry management practices. They replant where they harvest, secure the soil from erosion, preserve wildlife habitats and ensure that a sixth generation of the Robbins family can depend on a healthy and productive forest.

  • Product Quality: Customers tell us again and again that the Coveside products are “the best on the market” with the unique rougher-head finish and secure construction.
  • Environmental Concern: The dimensions are correct for each species and care is given to ventilation and drainage for the well being of the inhabitants.
  • Conservationists Prefer: Coveside products are manufactured from eastern white pine which is preferable because it is a second-growth tree which rejuvenates quickly.
  • Educational Materials: Each product comes with a brochure and a card telling about the wildlife inhabitant that will use it, recommending ideas for location and suggestions for maintenance procedures.
  • Experts Select: Coveside habitats were selected to be on permanent display in the United States Arboretums Buchheister National Bird Garden in Washington, DC and the Wildlife Garden at River Farm Gardens of the American Horticultural Society in Alexandria, VA.
