Leafcutter Bee House Package

Gardeners are often missing out on proper pollination due to lack of bees, which led Creative Woodcraft to put together this “Leafcutter bee house package”.

Everything you need to introduce and raise gentle-natured safe and super pollinating leafcutter bees!

Our gentle-natured leafcutter bees are generalists; meaning they don’t stick to certain blossoms, they like to pollinate whatever they find and like. They pollinate most blooming garden fruit, vegetables and various flowers.

News about solitary bees is becoming a hot topic and our leafcutter bees are now in high demand.

No protective gear is required and our leafcutter bees are perfectly safe around children and pets! And do not have the same upkeep (or cost) as honey bees.

This package will help gardeners everywhere grow more food and flowers.

Package Includes

  • Leafcutter bee house
  • 72-Hole interlocking wooden nesting tray system (reuseable year after year)
  • 50 leafcutter bees
  • Bee attractor pack – wildflower seed mix
  • 1 small packet of Maku Lotus (yellow flowering pasture plant), highly sort after by leafcutter bees for both pollen nectar and leaves. Consider sowing a small area of you garden to help your leafcutter bees thrive.
  • Post Mounting sleeve (allows you to post mount your leafcutter bee house onto any standard Waratah – steel fencepost) allowing you to position your leafcutter bee house just where you want it!

Other

A single female leafcutter bee visits 100,000+ blossoms per day compared to a honey bee, 50 – 1000. This means in some situations the pollinate 100% more effectively than honey bees.
