Leafcutter Bees at work in the Bug House

Ensuring a future for our wildlife

This video was taken at the end of August.

Their method is quite simple, yet clever (as all Nature is!). They will cut leaves in neat discs, transport them into the hole in the Bug House where they glue them together using saliva thus forming cells in which their Larvae will thrive until hibernation is over in Spring.

Rose bushes are their favourite source of leaf, so having a few around your garden will ensure they are attracted to the positioning of your Bug House.
