Description

The Woodsman ‘harvest’ untreated timbers relinquished to landfill, treat them with care, revive and restore them. These homes are filled with a variety of fallen, discarded and unwanted gathered materials including acacia, bamboo, pine, eucalyptus, bottlebrush, clay, brick stone, grasses and paperbark. They use these natural organic fibers to create the ideal nesting and rest habitat for native Australian bees and bugs.

These homes help support 1500+ species of solitary, native Australian bees which are cavity-nesters. These bees are typically not aggressive (non-stinging). The honey bees and wasps that were introduced to our environment from Europe are social hive builders, and therefore your bee home will not attract them.

The Woodsman bee home allows you to take an active part in conservation – bees are one of the most important creatures on the planet with much of life on earth depending on them.

 

Where to put your bee home –

Place your home in a sheltered position protected from extreme sun. The bees don’t need a large garden around them to support them, even a balcony garden will work. However, the more flowers and greater variety you have will make your home more attractive to the bees. Avoid any pesticide use.
