The Beepol Tree Villa and live hive is perfect for keeping the bees safe from potential threats such as animals and children. The wooden bracket is easy to secure to walls, fences or trees and the Villa simply slides on.

The Beepol colony in our new Beepol Tree Villa is a  UK native  Bumblebee colony and is similar to those used by commercial growers  for pollination of tomatoes and strawberry crops. The hive starts with 60 - 80 workers, eggs and a queen. The workers feed from a bag of sugar water solution inside the hive.

The  Beepol Tree Villa that houses the large bumblebee hive is made from durable FSC sourced timber and  has a new felt roof  for increased weather protection.  The Beepol Tree Villa also incorporatesa  ventilation hole at the back and solid stable feet to keep level. The bumblebee colony that sits inside the Villa can be viewed when the wooden lid is removed.

Villa Measurements approx: W - 31cm / D - 34cm / H - 32cm

Beepol Tree Villas make  a significant impact in a  garden, not only with the increased pollination they bring but as a stunning wildlife feature. Beepol colonies help pollinate a wide range of plants including wild flowers, fruit and vegetables.

Beepols are also highly educational, teaching children and adults about bees. Watching bumblebees coming and going from a Beepol Tree Villa is highly enjoyable and rewarding. It helps demonstrate how bees work and live. Beepol colonies often also produce new queens, which can set up new colonies in the local area. The Beepol Tree Villa is designed to be re-used each year with a new Beepol bumblebee colony.

Enjoy seeing how a bumblebee hive works with a Beepol Villa.

Last chance to treat Leatherjacket larvae

This short, fat leatherjacket  larvae does a lot of damage to lawns from August through to the end of October. The recent warm weather does enable later applications but should not be delayed to long now.

Once you have evidence of this grub under your grass, it is time to apply nematodes.

Available in many sizes -  100m2, 500m2 , these nematodes will seek out and destroy Leatherjacket larvae within 14 days of use. Can be applied by watering can or hose end nozzle.

This is a natural solution for leatherjackets in lawns. Leatherjackets are the larvae of crane flies, otherwise known as Daddy-long-Legs. The majority of the eggs are laid late summer and develop into Leatherjacket larvae in the late summer- early autumn.

Stop these horrible pests ruining your lawn by using a biological control.
