One of nature's most valuable pollinators, bumblebees need a warm, dry place to overwinter. This house is a cozy shelter with smart features for the
bees. It has two chambers, one for the queen and one for the worker bees; screens provide good ventilation. Includes raw cotton nesting material, too.
Lift the removable top, and a clear plastic panel lets you observe the bees' behavior. Place it in the garden in full or partial shade.

It looks really great, but I don't know which chamber the cotton belongs in. Some directions included would help a lot and give better pros.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Peek A Boo! I see U!
from Sault Ste. Marie, ON, CANADA
About Me Midrange Shopper
The Sale Price made it irressitable, and when I received it, I was happy with my choice. It would have been fun, but the material & time it would hav taken to plan it, shop it & purchase material, & build it, made the purchase a good one! Now I have a template if I do decide to make more units. Looking forward to Soneone moving in! I like the feature where U can lift off the roof and see thru the plexiglass.
Another Option to Attract Bees
from Hillsborough, CA
It is another option to attract Bees specifically Bumblebees. We'll have to see if it eventually attracts and will house them. Nice enough design but as it sits on the ground so I wonder how it will hold up? Also, came with some foam material and no instructions on why or how to use it. I assumed it is supposed to cover the inner chamber. May be obvious to some but a little more instruction would be better.
Great Way to Teach Children

Plan to use this next spring in an area where the Bee's are always Buzzing,
for Instructions see 'learn more' tab
from suburban MD.
This is a great idea, and looks very nice; just ordered a few to help attract pollinators for next year's veggie garden and fruit trees. Also will put near some early annuals in planters.

Would like instructions on best way to mount, direction to place opening and best height.

This worked within one month from me placing it in the garden...Nestled it among blooming lantana not too far off the ground on a concrete block facing east and here they come...

About Me High-end Shopper
Bumblebees are pollen collectors, whereas honeybees are nectar focused. Nectar foragers in the colony do pollinate, but to a much lesser extent since pollinating is just a side-effect of their main function: nectar collecting. This shelter is best used when heavy blossoming plants are already in your garden and bumblebees are regular visitors.

Something Every Garden Needs
from McCordsville, IN
I bought this in the winter and am very anxious for spring so that I can put this outdoors. With the shortage of bees, this is something every gardner needs.
