Disclaimer: Please choose an order date according to your individual temperature, we recommend 75F or 25C. You need flowers and plants for the bees to feed on. We do not recommend using any other bee house for our Kind bees. There will be no refunds or replacements if using other houses.

This is a yearly replacement kit for our pollinator house. It includes cocoons and nesting tubes as a replacement. Please compost old nesting tubes and empty cocoon cells from last year this will prevent mold and disease from taking over your bee home.

  • Nesting tubes are like paper straws. They are the perfect environment for the bees to build their cocoons and lay their eggs in.
  • The holes are 5mm in diameter, preventing unnecessary trips to cut leaves to get their holes lined to perfection for their eggs to be laid.
  • Watch your bees hatch! Breathable viewing window gives you the option to keep the bees indoors until they hatch. See our instructions for more information.
  • No-spill, easy- removal lid.

What happens at the end of the warm season?
For all of our pollinator houses for sale, we recommend putting both the cocoon box and the tube nesting box in your recycling bin. Why do this? Good question! Moisture and other weather conditions can sometimes create bacteria and mold, which can sometimes cause disease. We want to ensure this doesn’t spread, so we recommend that each season starts with a new nesting tube box bee colony and cocoon box. Since your bee home is made of acacia wood and has more space for aeration, it’s ok to keep it year-to-year and just order new nesting tube boxes and cocoons each year.
I’ve seen bigger nesting tubes than yours, aren’t the bees more comfortable with more space?
We have chosen our special tubes as they are perfect for our little bees. Leafcutter bees cut leaves in half-moon shapes, take them back to their home and line the tubes with them to create the best nest for their babies. The larger the hole, the more trips they will have to make the perfect cocoon, so a bigger tube is more work for them. You will see the tubes fill faster with the leaves and the eggs will get laid faster in our special tubes.
Why do you not have bamboo for tunnels?
Bamboo is a beautiful material. The tunnels we designed are smoother so our Kind Bees’ little wings do not get hurt as they go in and out of their home.
How many bees can these nesting tubes support at once?

Each bee has and cares for his own tunnel. There are 140 bee nesting tubes in this box. One box can house up to 140 bees.
