Inspired by tradition! Brighten up your garden with our Ceramic Bumblebee Nester

This Ceramic Bee Skep was designed with a keen eye on tradition. It emulates straw skeps from many centuries ago when bees were kept in baskets.

Much tougher than its traditional counterpart, made of hi-fired glazed ceramic. This frost-resistant nester provides a dry and ventilated home for bumblebees and small mammals such as voles, mice and shrews. Bumblebees often set up home in old mouse nests. So, don’t be disappointed if you get a furry resident in the first year.

Dimensions: 19 x 21 x 18 cm

Weight: 2kg

No Plastic  water-based paint

Bumblebees orientate by sight. So, place the skep in a visible area they can easily find and return to. It is important to have sufficient contrast between the skep and its surroundings. Avoid placing it in direct sun, and try to keep it sheltered from the wind. Good locations include, hedge bottoms, raised banks or flower borders.

Includes natural nesting material and instructions for siting and use.
