  • Painted with a weather resistant  bee friendly paint in a range of colours.
  • Voucher to return during our bumblebees season (May- July) for a live colony of bees

Beepol Queen Beehives are supplied with a large Beepol bumblebee hive containing a UK native species of bumblebee; Bombus terrestris audax. Each colony is supplied with a queen, workers,eggs and a sugar water food supply for the bees. A small amount of pollen is also added to the colony to help the bees during their transportation. Each large hive colony starts with about 50-60 workers.

Beepol bumblebees can be used to pollinate a wide range of plants including fruit trees, soft fruit, wildflowers and vegetables.

For further information on how many Beepol Queen Beehives would be required for pollinating larger areas, consult Dragonfli for more detailed advice.

Due to overwhelming demand we only have 4 hives left in the Queen Bee range -

 1x Pale Lilac  and 3 x Seagrass ( as of 21/06/17)

We will keep  updating this page, as and when more become available.

Apologies for any disappointment.
