Summer Leafcutter Bee Kit (includes 100-150 bees)


YOUR LEAFCUTTER BEE KIT WILL ARRIVE IN SUMMER 2021

Grow more vegetables with the pollination help from gentle leafcutter bees! We will mail your bees directly to your home in time to pollinate your blooming summer vegetable garden and flower beds (shipment time varies by location).

This kit includes: a nesting block with 100-150 leafcutter bees inside, a hangable wooden house, and return label for you to send the bees back at the end of the season. Already have a permanent bee house? Rent our Leafcutter Bee Insert. Want to rent mason bees too? Reserve our Pollinator Package which includes both leafcutter bees and mason bees.

Timeline of rented Leafcutter Bee Kit (example for PNW Region):
May: Receive kit
June: Hang the black house in the sunniest spot in your yard. Put your leafcutter bee block in the black house. The leafcutter bees are already in the block. Once temperatures reach 80 degrees F, they will be triggered to hatch out of the block.
June-August: Watch your vegetable garden thrive as leafcutter bees are flying around, pollinating your crops, and using the nesting block to lay their eggs.
September: Use the box your bees came in and return shipping label to send us back the bees. We will take clean the nest block and care of the bees during the winter months.
