- About Wildlife World
Experience the fascinating world of bees with this beautiful Bee Barn by Wildlife World.
The pretty Bee Barn provides a safe home for all types of friendly solitary bees in your garden. Produced from sustainably managed, FSC-certified wood, with a recycled second-life plastic frontage, this Bee Barn comes in an attractive gift box and is easy to put up and care for.
The Bee Barn is designed to attract solitary bees and many other species of pollinators and insects to take shelter and create their homes in the various sections. Perfect gift for adult and children alike.
Many other pollinators may nest in the bee barn, but they will require some nesting material to be added to the lower compartment as they often like to adopt ready-made nests from other creatures, such as birds. The recycled plastic door swivels, allowing access to this compartment.

Also available in Jekka’s Pollinating Gardeners Gift Box; the perfect gift.
Please hang your Bee Barn on a south or south-east facing wall to receive the morning sun for best success.

Like Jekka’s, Wildlife World is a small independent business not too far from us, based in Tetbury in Gloucestershire.

Their UK Workshop's wooden products are exclusively manufactured from FSC® certified timber. They use many naturally durable timbers which require more complex drying time but eliminates the need for chemical preservatives, which we totally agree with! Furthermore, their products are only treated with water-based stains and paints and they use recycled materials in place of plastic and metals where they can.
By buying Wildlife World products you are helping them support a huge range of environmental and wildlife projects. These include the Bumble Bee Conservation Trust, British Hedgehog Preservation Society, International Bee Research Association, The Centre for Alternative Technology, and other Wildlife Rescue Centres.
Following our root of being ‘green, environmentally friendly and sustainable', we use eco-kraft boxes that are FSC approved and do not use any plastic in the posting of our products.
