Invite pollinators into your garden using this Esschert Design hexagonal solitary bee hotel with paper straws. The paper tubes inside provides female solitary bees with plenty of places to lay eggs. The yellow, painted top section overhangs the tubes, protecting them from the elements, and a keyhole opening on the back makes it simple to place the piece against a wall. For a different effect, place the level surface of the item on a table or in your landscaping, or cluster a few together for geometric interest. Its natural wood and paper construction offers perfect nesting accommodation for solitary bees, and the vivid yellow top can attract these pollinators.
The paper straws are easily replaced so you don't have to spend time cleaning non-removeable tubes. The paper straws should be replaced each year to maintain a thriving, healthy bee population and prevent disease.
