Natural Lake Bed Reeds

from 9.95

Hand-cut lake bed reeds are the natural favorite for native bees, and they create an aesthetically pleasing display in our standard bee house, cabin or cottage. Their unique characteristics make it easy for bees to identify their own nesting hole. When placed side by side with tubes and wood trays, bees will use the reeds first nearly every time! At the end of the season, simply crack the reeds lengthwise to remove your cocoons. We have found that the natural reeds are even easier to open than our traditional kraft nesting tubes. Each package of large reeds contains 25 and are approximately 8mm and is suitable for most spring bees, including mason bees. Each package of small reeds contains 50 and are approximately 4-6mm, suitable for many wild bees as well as native leafcutter bees. Use reeds in combination with other nesting materials to make your own DIY bee hotel!
