Just when bats are finally being recognized as nature's most effective insect control, they are losing their natural habitat. In fact, the little brown bat is an endangered species. This attractive house is designed by folks who really understand these gentle, misunderstood mammals. It has features not found on plain "bat boxes:" thick pine walls for insulation, screen for easy climbing, and an "echolocation" slot that guides them home.

Ideal against a south-facing wall (where it won't swing in the wind and where the sun can keep it warm). Replacement nesting tubes sold separately.
Changing out the paper tubes in your mason bee house each spring gives newly hatched female bees the best start to nesting season. How? Clean, fresh, tubes ensure that no harmful parasites or fungi linger from the previous season to impact the bees' health.

The stepped design of this clever little bath not only gives birds a place to clean their feathers, but also provides a safe place for beneficial insects to grab a drink! Butterflies, bees, and other pollinators will appreciate having a place to hydrate in hot summer months – just be sure to change the water out daily to prevent bacteria from accumulating.
Attract pollinating bees to the garden and watch how they work! Flip the roof up to reveal a clear panel through which you can follow their activity in the stacking trays below.
