Bee and Butterfly House
Our Bee and Butterfly House is comprised of two different habitats. The solitary bee area has an inch thick solid back to provide insulation. Holes are drilled at a slight downward angle to a depth of 7 inches, to accommodate the natural habits of solitary bees and to allow moisture to run off. Counter-sunk holes allow bees to orient themselves when entering the house. The butterfly area has a slot to facilitate easy entry and provides a habitat for over-wintering.
Our products are handmade from FSC cedar, which has been sourced in the southwest, and from recycled and reclaimed materials. The timber we use is 20 mm thick, to provide reliable insulation and durability. The colour washes we use are child, pet and wildlife safe. We conduct on-going testing on our products, and have researched our habitats thoroughly to make them fit for purpose and built to last. Our intention was to make beautiful garden ornaments in addition to producing something durable and functional. We have conducted a great deal of research in order to produce an item that is fit for the needs of its intended inhabitants.
