BEEPOL Bumblebee Lodge
Please note - only the Tree Lodge is currently available (July 2015)
The BEEPOL Bumblebee Lodge has been upgraded with important features, to make it a better, longer lasting, safe and secure home for your LIVE Beepol Bumblebees.
The Beepol lodge has an eco-roof made from recycled farm plastic. This gives the lodge added weather protection and increased longevity. The Beepol lodge also incorporates an anti- wax moth device to reduce the chance of wax moths getting into the hive. The anti wax moth device works like a cat flap for bees. The bees learn how to open the flap for entering and exiting the hive, but the wax moth can't open it. The lodge also has insulating tape to prevent the wax moth entering through any gaps in the lodge roof and walls.
New ventilation holes have been incorporated into the design for increased air flow into the colony and to keep the bees as cool as possible in hot conditions. The vents are covered wiht protective mesh to prevent access from other insects and moths.
Based on traditional bee hive designs, the BEEPOL Lodge has been hand crafted in the UK from durable timber grown on FSC plantations. Bumblebee colonies do not continue through the winter in the same way as honeybees do, so each year a fresh new BEEPOL Garden Hive can be purchased and placed within the lodge, ensuring every summer you can enjoy the sight and sounds of British Native Bumblebees hard at work in your garden.
- The BEEPOL Lodge contains one BEEPOL garden hive, which can be replaced with a new one when the hive comes to the end of its life and the new queen bumblebees have dispersed.
- The BEEPOL Lodge has a hinged roof for access and for viewing the Bumblebee colony within.
- The BEEPOL Lodge has a landing ledge for the bees to rest on, as they come back to the hive with heavy loads of pollen.
- The BEEPOL Lodge incorporates wooden legs to keep the hive off the ground.
- The BEEPOL Lodge can either be purchased with a live hive or with a voucher. The voucher can be posted to Dragonfli when you are ready to receive your live BEEPOL hive.
- The BEEPOL Lodge with a voucher makes an ideal gift at any time of year!
