How It Works

We must sell at least 30 solitary bee houses between now and August 22nd in order to meet our goal and launch this product! You'll be charged upon purchase, but if the goal isn't reached by the target date, we will refund you within 7 days. Please allow 6-9 weeks for shipping after the crowdfund period ends. The MSRP for this product would normally be $69.99, but since this is a crowdfund we've discounted the price to $39.99!

What Does The Solitary Bee Bath House Do?

Our Solitary Bee Bath House is engineered to provide an ideal nesting environment for a variety of solitary bees. We're working to provide:

🐝 Safety from predators

🐝 An optimal nesting environment

🐝 Transparent panels for monitoring bee activity

🐝 Untreated wood nesting cavity for bee safety

🐝 Replaceable nesting cavity

*Features and design subject to change

Setting one of these up in your backyard is a great way to get the whole family involved in conservation, pollination, and observing your bees at any time you want.

The Backstory

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.
