Solitary bees and Bumble Bee sanctuary
There are 77 species of solitary bees and 20 bumble bees in Ireland and we need to help them as well as they are in decline. So we developed this box for ourselves initially and we were successful in giving homes to both solitary bees and Bumble bees.
Bumble bees are better pollinators than honeybees and they are sadly in decline.
They use these boxes to breed from and lay eggs.
