Who would buy this?!?!? I don't actually go out of my way to kill bees (unlike wasps), however, if a bee gets too close then it gets the old newspaper treatment. Why would anybody want to encourage the horrible things?!?!? Newsflash ................they sting and it hurts like HELL!!!

Gball - Bees are fine - they only sting you if they are defending themselves. Wasps are nasty bad tempered beasts though. But bees are lovely. I wouldn't kill a dog if it came near me to prevent it from potentially biting me.

Oh, and heat added - fab deal.

A great idea. Bees won't generally sting unless they are scared, angry or, are protecting themselves or the nest. If you swipe at them and flail around you are far more likely to get stung than if you simply stay still. Please don't kill them. Their numbers are in decline for all sorts of reasons and we need them to pollinate our plants and crops. We should all do our best to engourage a healthy bee population. It is in our own interest.

Raken from: http://hubpages.com/hub/Why-saving-the-bees-is-so-important-for-our-world_

Now, with bees and honey bees, in particular we know that over one-third of our food supply relies upon them for pollination services and we know that pollination is essential for the reproduction of the plants the bees service.

The honey bee is a major pollinator of many of our food crops, almonds, apples, avocados, blueberries, cantaloupes, cherries, cranberries, cucumbers, sunflowers, watermelon and many other crops all rely on honey bees for pollination.

So if honey bees disappear and we do not find replacements that can do the work they do then foods that we take for granted will decrease in supply and increase in price.

The pollination service provided by insect pollinators, bees mainly, was €153 billion (euros) in 2005 for the main crops that feed the world. This figure amounted to 9.5% of the total value of the world agricultural food production.

The main reason that the honey bees is important for our world is as simple as this; if the honey bee does not pollinate the crops, the crops do not grow and produce the food that gets harvested and brought to the store where we buy it and bring it home to feed ourselves and our families.

In other words there is a direct connection between the bees pollinating the crops and our ability to provide food for our families.

The honey bees do provide a second service; they make honey.

Would be better to get more flowers into the garden and get rid of decking and concrete. I have read that these type of 'bee homes' do not actually attract bees to them.

Honey bees are amazing in their 42 day life span! They all have a job to do from nurse bees to keeping the hive clean and guard bees to prevent robbing. The honey bees you see foraging in your garden are in the last two weeks of their life cycle so killing these bees will cause lots of problems from less honey being available and less flowers being pollinated. If a bee lands on you try not to panic but keep still and she won't harm you - if a bee stings you she dies - to find out more about bees, search for your local apiary in your area and you would be more than welcome to pay them a visit in the summer and learn more about bees.

Just for your information, if there were NO bees, there would be no life, bear this in mind when you call them horrible things, do NOT interfere with them, and they will not interfere with you!!

I think this is for solitary bees, not honey bees.

I died after getting stung by a bee once, they are very dangerous animals. Especially the 'Godzilla bees' they're the worst. I say kill them all!

I get masonry bees burrowing into the mortar between the bricks.
I may try one of these to tempt them away from eating my house.
They can really munch through a lot of mortar during the summer, you see piles of dust on the floor. Took me a while before I sussed out where it was coming from.
Good find OP. Heat added.

I like the idea of encouraging bees but what if wasps decided to nest in it instead? They love chewing wood!

Had two wasps nests last year, one in the loft and one in just over my fence in the adjoining field in a bramble. They spoil summer.

I AGREE! No bees = no pollination = no plants = no harvests = NO FOOD (= no life!).
Bees have only ONE STING...they use it, literally, as a last resort ('cause they die!)...like if you sit on top of them! Actually wasps (multi-stingers) rarely sting humans...again, only if provoked. I had a wasps nest in the garden and could sit nearby watching them going to and fro...never been stung! Wasps tend to sting in late August / September when they are dying off and get agitated.
Protect the bees! :3

Wasps only chew dead wood and they use it to construct their nests. I regularly have wasps nests in my garden, in old bird nesting boxes and, in the attic. They have never bothered me. I have heard that if you leave the old nest in place wasps won't build a new one there but I'm not sure if that's true or not.

THIS is why i teach my kids NEVER to run or swat at anything. if you panic the child will pick it up and therefore COPY the adult. not so good eh? if you LEARN about these animals youll like them or at least understnad them.

Some wasps are aggressive, but not all. We had a nest of Dolichovespula media on our fence last year and they were no trouble at all. The kids were fascinated to see the nest being built and took it apart at the end of the year to see the internal structure.

It isn't a theory, it's true.

Just cover them in petrol and set them on fire.



Oh wait, one was in your loft? Probably not the best plan then.
