Solitary bees don’t swarm, sting or make honey so they don’t need any maintenance, just places to nest. While it can Itake up to 20,000 honey bees to pollinate an acre of apple orchard, it can take only 250 solitary bees. Made entirely in England by an artisan potter in Stoke-on-Trent, the beepalace is slip-cast in small batches and hand glazed. It is designed to be a focal point in a garden and to look attractive on its own or in group – just hang it on a wall or fence. Remember, solitary bees are docile and will nest close to humans. They very rarely use their weak sting and do not swarm. The nesting tubes inside the beepalace are made of cardboard and replicate the type of nesting places solitary bees seek out in nature.
