The Queen Bee hive [Seagrass] is a stunning new addition to our Beepol bumblebee range. Produced as a special limited edition to celebrate the Queens 90th birthday. The new Queen Bee hive is built to a British design in the UK. The Queen Bee hive is designed to house our large Beepol bumblebee hives and is painted in a weather resistant seagrass.

  • British design and British made wooden hive
  • Supplied with live large Beepol bumblebee colony May - July 2017
  • Painted with weather proof paint in seagrass green.
  • Easy bee release system
  • Maintenance free bee keeping, as no honey produced for consumption
  • Highly educational and fasinating to watch

The Queen Bee hive ( Seagrass)  is supplied with a colony of UK native bumblebees. Each colony has a Queen, workers, eggs and a sugar water feed supply . The sugar water is capped during transport to prevent spillage and there is an easy process to follow to re-connect on delivery without disturbing the bees.

The colony is also treated with B401 , a natural bacteria to help stop wax moths attacking the colony, which are a natural predator of bees in nature. Remember to order some B401 so the Queen Beehive can be sprayed inside and outside before the bees are released.The colony of bees will die out before the autumn, which is the natural life cycle of bumblebees but will release new queens into nature. The colony can be replaced each year with a new one and put into the Queen Bee hive.

Celebrate the Queens birthday in your garden with a Queen Bee hive (seagrass). Bumblebees are fascinating to watch and are very valuable pollinating insects.

 Delivery  is between May - July 2017.

Bumblebee deliveries

Our 2017 bumblebee delivery season has begun!

Still time to order your live colony, as we are delivering though to mid-July.

If you already have Beepol Villa or Queen Beehive, you will only need to order the bees this year.

As usual, we will be pre-treating the cardboard with B401 to protect against wax moth attacks, but you will need to treat the wood on the Villa or Queen Beehive yourself.

If you have not had our bees before, then the Villa and bees will be delivered together with the bees in the spring ( May -July).

 The Villa 2017 also comes with a gift voucher for the large bumblebee colony making it a great present idea or can be pre-ordered  with a live colony for delivery this spring ( May - July)

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 3 sizes M, L XL
