Our native bee house is a safe place for solitary Australian native bees to establish a home in your garden. Made in Brisbane from reused timber boxes and weed bamboo. Bees are the mystery helpers in our gardens and this bee house is perfect to raise their young.

We have other design bee hotels made in Brisbane also available in Small and Large

Each bee house is the same size as shown but may look different.

This year, we are very grateful to have our bee houses made by our local Indooroopilly Men's Shed from reused pallet boxes and weed bamboo cleared from around Brisbane.  Read more about the Men's Shed association below.

Australian native bees play an important role as key pollinators of native species. Native bees are more fragile than the introduced European honey bee and have suffered greatly from urban deofrestation.  But now, the Biome Bee House is here to help.

The card accompanying the bee house, features native bee illustrations by Brisbane artist Ingrid Bartkowiak. 

Native bees and wasps are the mystery helpers in our garden, most are solitary and with its many hollows and tiny nooks, this bee house is perfect for raising their young.

Where to put your bee house?

Position your Biome Native Bee House (or Wild Bee Hotel) in a sheltered spot out of the hot midday sun (but still able to get morning sun) and also out of harsh rain or winds.  Hang under an eave or under a tree. Native bees are cold blooded and need the heat of the sun in the morning to warm up.  Face the bee house towards the morning sun. Keep other vegetation away from the entrances.  Native bees need a stable, safe environment and prefer not to compete with ants.

Encouraging bees to our garden!

I bought an older version of this from the Biome website a couple of years ago now, that was yellow in colour. I think this version is actually much more attractive. We moved in a new build house wih a bare garden that need to be established and I wanted to do something to encourage bees into the garden besides just newly planted flowering plants.

Buzzing over this one

Love that this is a Brisbane made product from recycled and weed materials.

Fantastic gift!

After watching many documentaries on the colony collapse disorder with the bees in the USA and Europe, we wanted to do something in our own home for the bees, so I bought this for my husband for father's day. He REALLY loves it!

Cute

Really cute. Haven't had any guests yet but it's probably not the right time of year either.
