The new Beepol Villa  is the replacement for our older Beepol Lodges, Cabins and Beepol Copper roofed Villas, which are no longer produced.

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

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

Beepol 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 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 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.

Both Villa and Bees will be delivered together next Spring 2018 ( May - July). If you require the Villa and Hive as a present to be delivered immediatley, please order the Villa and Voucher option.

Beepol bumblebee hives will die out naturally after 2-3 months and do not overwinter. The lifespan is often dictated by its surroundings and can vary.

Spider Mite Control 

Red Spider Mite is one of those pests that simply refuses to be controlled at times. Luckily we have a few great options to hammer down pest populations and stay on top of the problem. 
 
Spider Mite Killer – Phytoseiulus persimilis predators are fantastic for use when red spider mite is present in large numbers. This hungry predator will munch through up to 20 red spider mites per day. Available in a number of sizes to suit your treatment area.
 
 
Spider Mite Killer Sachets- Amblyseius andersoni predators are excellent when used as a preventative or long term control method for spider mites. Utilising the ability to feed on pollen even when prey is sparse these predators can survive for longer allowing introduction before infestations can build up. These predators feed on eggs, young and adult spider mites making them ideal to break pest life cycles long term. 
 

 

 

Red Mite Season

The warmer temperatures are perfect for Red Mite ( Chicken Mite) to increase in numbers.

ANDROLIS is the name of the product for controlling red mite and northern fowl mite on all birds.

It contains predatory mites that feed on red mite. They kill all stages of the parasites from egg to adult.

Red bird mite [ Dermanyssus gallinae ] causes significant stress to infected birds and anemia, which  sometimes leads to death. Birds show signs of nervousness and even cannibalism.

Chickens/ hens  and other birds infected with Red Mite also see a drop in egg laying.

ANDROLIS is easy to use and is 100% safe to the birds, the environment and humans.

Androlis is available in 4 sizes     M, L, XLXXL
