It is becoming more difficult for bumblebees to find suitable locations for their nests. This bumblebee house is ideal for the busy and active lifestyle of the bumblebee. Strategically place the bumblebee house away from direct sunlight, or in a location that gets morning sun, but is secluded in shade for the rest of the day. Place straw, wood chips or other bedding material in the bottom, but do not cover the openings. Can also be buried in the ground up to the openings.
