When your BeeHome arrives it's important to consider a few small points in order to get the most out your bees and BeeHome.

What you will receive

Your BeeHome package will contain:

  • 1 x BeeHome
  • 1 x pack of 4mm nesting tunnels - quantity 50
  • 2 x packs of 6mm nesting tunnels - quantity 100
  • 1 x pack of 8mm nesting tunnels - quantity 50
  • 1 x pack of 10mm nesting tunnels - quantity 50

Installing the nesting tunnels

You’ll require around half of the supplied nesting tunnels when setting up your BeeHome. The nesting tunnels can be placed in any order within the BeeHome, ensuring they are pushed back firmly against the back of the BeeHome. It is important to ensure the nesting tunnels are packed/wedged in firmly so they do not fall out when BeeHome is moved and positioned in it's suitable location within your garden.

Note: The remaining nesting tunnels are complimentary replacements for the end of bee season. This is useful is your are opting in to our BeeCare programme and sending back your used nesting tunnels at the end of the bee season in May.
