The Beepol Villa with a large hive gift voucher is available all year round as a very unique gift idea.
Use the Voucher for a live large bee colony during the bee season (May- June). Each large Beepol Bumblebee hive has a Queen, workers and eggs. The large hive has 60-80 workers at the start, but will build to much higher numbers. The hive is supplied with its own sugar water as an internal food source. Each colony will normally live for 2 -3 months, depending on conditions and weather. Live hives are delivered between May-June each year.
The new Beepol Villa has a rough, grey felt ,detachable roof, to gain easy access to the bees. The Villa is made of FSC timber and handmade in the UK. The entrance hole at the front gives the bees easy access to the colony and the ventilation hole at the back helps to keep air circulating in the hive on warm days. The wooden legs raise it above the ground and make it easy to place on a variety of different surfaces.
