CASTLES are for gardeners who have more than 60 or more cocoons. Enough nesting holes for 60 females. Made from solid cedar and made to last. With an attic for safe cocoon storage.
The Castle is our LARGEST Bee Home-suitable for large gardens, small orchards and mason bee keeping enthusiasts.
Like all Beediverse products, the Castle is durable, attractive, easy-to-clean and made from sustainable resources to lasts many summers. Turn the lever and slide wooden predator guard out to access nesting trays. The space above nesting trays is suitable for safely emerging your bees. When mature bees emerge in spring they take up residence in nesting tunnels below.
A slightly pitched roof sheds water and the overhang protects the bees from wind, rain and hot sun.
The Castle is pre-loaded with two sets of Quicklock nesting trays, each with 30 nesting tunnels. Long lasting rubber bands hold trays together and rubber bands and nesting trays can be used year after year. In the fall, slide trays out for cleaning, and replace the cleaned trays ready for spring. Wash with a brush in luke-warm water. Do not use hot water or blow dry with high heat.
Outside dimensions: 30 x 20 x 13 cm or 8x 11.75x 5 inches
Materials: solid wood, corn based nesting trays, rubber bands
