Bumblebee Villa and colony

Bumblebee Villa and colony

Want better pollination for all your garden fruit & vegetables ........ then why not invest in a bumblebee hive! Good pollination will improve both the yield and the quality of crops. The native British Bumblebee, Bombus terrestris Audax, is a far more efficient pollinator than the honey bee, being prepared to fly in cool, windy or damp conditions.

They are docile and will only sting if severely aggravated, and are routinely used commercially for the pollination of many fruit and vegetable crops.

Our Bumblebee Villa is handmade in the UK from FSC timber, with wooden legs to raise it off the ground, rear ventilation hole and a detachable wooden roof with grey, rough felt finish for weather protection. It comes complete with a large bumblebee hive colony that consists of a queen, 50-60 workers, eggs, sugar water food supply and a small amount of pollen to help the bees during their transportation. Height 33cm (13"); Width 39cm (15½"); Length/Depth 34.5cm (13½").

At the end of the summer, the bumblebees will die off. However new queens will be produced that will create colonies of their own in the local environment. And next year you can simply order a new colony to populate your Villa.

PLEASE NOTE: The Bumblebee Villa will be despatched within 7 days of ordering. Also if you are ordering 595930 at the same time a Colony voucher will be sent to you so that you may redeem it from the beginning of next season, MAY 2019. When ordering this product an email address is required. Unfortunately due to this item being a live product we cannot send to Ireland, Southern Ireland, Isle of Wight, Isle of Scilly and the Channel Islands.
