Ceramic Bumblebee Nester
However, unlike its traditional counterpart, our Bee Skep is much more resilient, made from high-fired glazed ceramic. Not only is it frost-resistant, but it also provides a dry and well-ventilated home for small mammals, including bumblebees, voles, mice, and shrews. It's even possible for bumblebees to settle into old mouse nests, so be prepared for some furry friends to move in!
For optimal results, it's important to choose a location for the skep where bumblebees can easily find and return to it. As bumblebees navigate based on their vision, it's important to ensure there's enough contrast between the skep and its surroundings. Additionally, we recommend placing the skep in a sheltered spot away from direct sunlight and wind, such as in hedge bottoms, raised banks, or flower borders.
To help you get started, our Ceramic Bee Skep includes natural nesting material and detailed instructions on how to properly situate and utilise the skep. So why not add a touch of tradition and natural beauty to your garden with our Ceramic Bee Skep today!
