Along with the Backyard Pollinator Boxes, we also offer Hatch & Release Leafcutter Bees, and (NEW this season!!) the Solitary Bee Barn. Choose from the DIY or Pre-Built version of our Solitary Bee Barn, which provides weather-durability and makes an attractive surround for your Backyard Pollinator.
Leafcutter bees are gentle and non-aggressive solitary bees which stay close to their home. They are also known as super-pollinators, carrying dry pollen on their hairy underside and leaving some of this pollen on every flower they visit.
The Backyard Pollinator is an essential item for curious children, avid gardeners, nature lovers, budding entomologists, excited grandparents, super Moms, cool Dads, the ecologically aware, and entry-level beekeepers. Our easy system is your link to a new friendship with hard-working, low maintenance bees that work to make your yard the best it can be.
Leafcutter bees are very small and will work in unison with other types of bees. A single female leafcutter bee may visit thousands of blossoms in a day. They are known as generalists and will pollinate whichever flowers they find and like. If there are adequate flowers to forage on, this small bee will stay within 100-200 metres of their nesting habitat so the benefits of their pollination will be seen close at hand.
Allow yourself to relax. Simply sit in the sun near your Backyard Pollinator, close your eyes and listen to the bees hum. Leafcutter bees for your back yard and garden are friendly, efficient, and fun to watch for the whole family and the growing community of ecologically aware gardeners.
