Announcement   Help save bees and increase production in your garden or farm. Our Native Bee Cabins are made from reclaimed and recycled wood and provide homes for certain native bee species.

Native bees are nature's pollination machines and are far more effective than honeybees and require hardly any maintenance. In the US and Canada we have over 4,000 species alone! Our cabins provide nesting sites for certain species, specifically mason bees and leafcutter bees.

How does a native bee house work?
This low-maintenance solution recreates where certain bee species live in nature, such as tunnels made in dead wood by beetles and other boring insects. Each bee house provides shelter from the elements and provides individual nesting sites for solitary native bees.

Learn more about native bees, other pollinators, and creating the ideal habitat for bees by visiting sprigglys.com.

Will I need replacement "homes" for the bees?
The nesting blocks or tubes should be replaced every year to prevent the build-up of pests and diseases. Simply replace your old blocks and tubes inside the bee house after your bees have emerged. Spriggly's Beescaping offers replacement blocks and tubes for free to previous Spriggly's customers - simply pay shipping and handling.

Where is the best place to put the bee house?
Native bee houses work best when they are facing south/southeast in a place that they receive morning sun on the entrance into the house. Make sure your house is sheltered from harsh winds and has a water source nearby. If there is no water source available, fill a small dish with water and gravel or put a plant nearby that can catch water, such as a cup plant.

When can I expect bees to build nests?
Different bee species are active at different times of the year. However, you should expect to see residents from early spring through summer.

About

Spriggly's Story

Spriggly’s Beescaping is a new small business located in Waynesville, North Carolina that offers workshops, products, and services to create environments that support beneficial pollinators. Husband and wife team, Brannen Basham and Jill Jacobs, a young couple who relocated to the region from the Philadelphia area in June 2016 started the business. Spriggly’s puts a special focus on supporting the 4,000 species of native bees located in the United States and Canada alone. They offer affordable, low-maintenance solutions that any gardener can implement to support native pollinators and increase production in their garden or farm. In addition, Spriggly’s provides a series of educational opportunities for individuals, community groups, educational institutions, and K-12 students. These opportunities include on-site workshops, installations, lectures, and more. Spriggly’s sells Native Bee Cabins as well as education kits that can be ordered nationwide.

Beyond opportunities for the general public and educational institutions, Spriggly’s Beescaping works with businesses, farmers, towns and cities to create educational pollinator exhibits and gardens that help to re-establish habitat that has been lost due to urbanization. Spriggly’s exhibits include a series of “Native Bee Cabins” that are educational, resourceful, and functional, providing home-sites for native bees.

Spriggly’s Beescaping uses reclaimed and recycled wood whenever possible; only our wooden inserts sometimes utilized purchased wood to ensure they have been heat treated.
