This product is nice and simple but I was under the impression it came with starter nesting tubes. It does not. You have to order those separately, FYI.
Otherwise excited to see how it works.
I can't wait to give these a try next spring. My makeshift bee tube holders are past due being replaced, and these sturdy structures should last a very long time.
Wish I ordered more tubes for the inside, but other than that I love it.
these are very sturdy, made of thick wood. i coated them w/ tung oil and expect them to outlast me.
I was so excited to get these houses to expand our support for pollinators in the area. I love the idea of these hexagonal homes, but unfortunately the quality of the product was very disappointing. One of the three houses had a wall separated (some staples used to put it together had not entered the wall cleanly and it fell apart as I was adding the tubes.) I had to pull out my air gun and re-enforce the work. Additionally the joints were not as clean as I would have liked. When looking at the house face on, there are gaps in the joints, it is not a tight fit. Ultimately these will be a nice addition to our garden, but my standards for a quality product are higher than what was provided.
