Conservation Solitary Beehive
The Conservation Solitary Beehive is manufactured from high quality FSC certified timber to provide a solid construction with an attractive yet simple styling. This high specification solitary beehive is particularly aimed at conservation professionals, orchard and fruit growers, landscapers and such like.
This professional solitary beehive has three different solitary bee nesting systems which are incorporated into one ideal space for up to 1000 bee cells.
On either side of the solitary beehive are stackable beehive trays which are secured using retractable threaded screws accessed via the lifting lid. The stackable beehive trays allow larvae inspection for the purpose of monitoring and parasite control. The second beehive chamber has a precision drilled solid block which provides maximum insulation for the overwintering larvae of the solitary bees.
This solitary beehive box also incorporates 8mm cardboard nesting tubes, these are designed to be replaced annually in order to prevent parasite build up. They may also be used in conjunction with professional paper insert so that inspection can be performed to a pro-level.
The hinged woodpecker guard on the front of the solitary beehive puts the solitary bee larvae out of reach of these greedy birds.
