Easy-Tear Nesting Tubes

from 9.95

Nesting tubes are an economical, no-fuss nesting material for your bees. Made of 100% recyclable Kraft paper, the tubes can be unwound in the fall for easy harvesting of your cocoons. The end of each tube is closed except for a small 1/16" opening. By looking through the tubes in the fall, you will be able to see light through the opening of unused tubes, which can be saved for the next season. Used tubes are recycled after removing the cocoons. Because used tubes are not reused from year to year, there is nothing to have to clean, and no damaging pests or diseases will be spread to your bees.

Blue Orchard Mason Bees (spring bees) prefer 8mm tubes. Each package  of this size contains 36 Easy-Tear Tubes. These were previously referred to as #1 Tubes.

Leafcutter Bees (summer bees) prefer 6mm tubes. Each package of this size contains 50 Easy-Tear Tubes. These were previously referred to as #6 tubes.

Nesting tubes can be used in any of our bee houses alone, in place of wood blocks, or in addition to wood blocks. The 8mm tubes can be fitted with an insert that makes harvesting your cocoons easier, and costs less. Inserts are available in the Nesting Materials category.

If you are having trouble attracting bees to your house, you may want to try adding our wood trays or natural lake bed reeds. By providing a variety of nesting materials, you may attract a greater number and variety of bees.
