DIY Bee Hotel Kit

Beevive Ltd

Welcome solitary bees into your garden and experience their pollinating powers with this DIY Bee Hotel Kit!

Made in the UK from sustainably sourced and grown panguaneta poplar wood, this kit is designed to be posted through your letterbox and constructed at home to provide a safe space for solitary bees to build nests within the tubes and lay their eggs.

Solitary bees are a joy to watch and are non-aggressive, therefore child and pet-friendly. They don't live in colonies (unlike bumblebees and honey bees) and are facing a crisis having lost much of their natural habitat - they need your help!

Gift to a nature-loving, animal-loving, or bee-loving friend.

The perfect gift to introduce others to the world of solitary bees via the post, suitable for small or large outdoor spaces. Position on a wall, balcony, courtyard, beside a windowsill, or community garden.

We offer an additional bee-spoke service to personalize your kit by engraving a family name or small message to the front of your bee hotel ✍

Each kit is manufactured in the UK, engraved, and shipped from our Devon-based studio.
