To celebrate the Queens 90th birthday year in 2016, we launched the Queen Bee range of Beepol bumblebee hives. A limited edition created to mark this unique time. The Queen Bee hive makes a beautiful and fascinating addition to any garden.
  • Made in Britain to a British design
  • Designed to house our large Beepol colony of native UK bumblebees
  • Beautifully crafted
  • Painted with a weather resistant pale lilac paint
  • Voucher to return during our bumblebees season (May- July 2018) for a live colony of bees
  • Each colony has a queen , workers, eggs and sugar water food supply
  • Ventilation hole
  • Easy release system
  • Maintenance free

The voucher that comes with the Queen Beehive is valid for a large Beepol colony that is supplied with the Queen bee hive contains a queen, about 60-70 workers, eggs and a food supply of sugar water underneath the colony. This is capped when we send out with our courier to avoid spillage. The cap is removed on receipt by the customer [ easy process while bees are still contained in the colony ]. The colony is also treated with a natural product to help reduce wax moth attack, which is a natural predator of bees in the wild.

Bumblebees are delivered between May and July every year, so the voucher needs to be returned before or during the delivery season.

Bumblebees are fantastic pollinating insects and great to observe at work in your garden. The live colony requires no maintenance and has an easy release system. The colony needs replacing each year, as the bumblebee life cycle is quite short compared to honeybees. The Queen Bee hives are designed to last for many years and can have new colonies added to them each year.

Enjoy the sight and sound of bumblebees in the garden with the stunning Queen Bee hive and voucher, a great way to celebrate the Queens birthday and reign and give a unique present all year round.

Don;t forget to add some B401 to your order, for extra Wax Moth protection.

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
