"If the bee disappeared off the surface of the globe then man would only have four years of life left. No more bees, no more pollination, no more plants, no more animals, no more man." - Albert Einstein (rumored)
When you see a big fuzzy yellow and black bumblebee flying awkwardly around your yard or garden, rest assured that this gentle bee is only there to feed on nectar and gather pollen. Bumblebees are generally considered gentle and non-aggressive towards humans, unless their colony is under attack or they are threatened and make excellent pollinators. Unlike the stinging, honey bee, the harmless bumblebee doesn't store pollen / honey and never swarms and as the old saying goes, shouldn't even be capable of flight, yet does anyways.
Unfortunately, bumblebee numbers have been on the decline recently and since they are vital for wildflower and crop pollination, they should be welcomed to your garden with this cool new ceramic Bumblebee Nester. This ceramic English-designed all-weather skep looks like a little beehive and will keep the bumblebees close by to tend to your flowers and keep their colony protected as well. The nester comes complete with all-natural nesting material and easy instructions.
