Bee Bath House: Peek Into The World Of Solitary Bees
We wanted to bring some transparency to the un-BEE-lievable world of solitary bees, so we built a Bee Bath House that allows you to see directly into their nesting habitat. If you are passionate about bees or just want your backyard flowers to flourish, join us on our journey as we develop an innovative solitary bee bath house.

Tiffany began researching bees after realizing there is a large and very passionate community of bee enthusiasts across the globe. After speaking with beekeepers, bee scientists, and bee hobbyists, Tiffany realized the solitary bee community is an impactful but underserved species. Like any good maker, she grabbed some wood and started hacking away at a solitary bee house prototype.
