Solitary bees are gentle bees that are wonderful pollinators in your garden. They are called solitary bees because they do not live in colonies like bumblebees or honeybees do. Solitary bees tend to lay their individual larvae in tubes or tunnels where they stay for 9 months before emerging as adult pollinators. Wildlife World have been studying the solitary bee for 15 years and have many tried and tested solitary bee habitats for you to choose from as well as the essentials to enable you to build your own bee hotels.
To attract solitary bees into your garden, you should of course include flowering plants to provide nectar and pollen. We have selected a range of native wildflower species that are ideal for pollinating bees.
