The BeeClub – 3D Printed Bee Feeder/Breeder

£33.20

Description

Dimensions: 127mm Width x 48mm height

This latest Bee feeder/breeder was developed in collaboration with a very nice lady, Joanna from We Love Our Bees! in Florida (check out her website – www.welovourbees.com). She initially messaged me to design a special device for Orchid Bees, to help them breed. I’d never heard of Orchid Bees, we don’t have them here in the UK, but she showed me photos and they’re so adorable! (I’ve attached a couple of those so you can see and love them too). For those who haven’t seen them, Orchid Bees are a metallic blue, green or red colour, and to find mates the males rub clove oil on their legs to attract the females. Joanna had been using a saucer with a cotton ball soaked in clove oil, but she needed something which could be hung up.

Aha, a new product needed: a designer’s catnip.

My solution was The BeeClub. This is a small platform with a depression in the middle, in case you want to put water in, and a central column with a hole through which you can poke a clove-oil soaked cotton bud. The platform has four fluorescent ramps to guide the bees into the cotton bud (bees see further into the UV range than we do). The whole lower platform twist-locks into the wide canopy, designed to keep the rain off, which is also fluorescent. On top of that there’s a hanging ring for a branch, a table or wherever the bees go!

It’s called The BeeClub mainly because it’s not a bar, where the bees can go to drink; it’s a club, where bees go to meet other bees so they can make little bees. So they end up ‘in the club’ too…

The BeeClub can be ordered in fluorescent yellow, pink or orange and will be delivered fully assembled. Joanna recommends using Now Foods 100% Pure Clove Oil, and you can see from the photos the bees already love it. So order your very own BeeClub and help the bees get bizeahhhhhhhhhhhh…….

    I actually got this for a friend of mine who is super wealthy, has all the jewelry she could ever want – and I didn’t know what to get her for Christmas – she also loves bees and when I gave her these earrings, she was absolutely THRILLED! They’re fun, bright – well made – and she wore these to a fancy Christmas party and got LOTS of great comments!!!!! I have a pair myself and am always getting great fun comments – they are just too cute for words!!!!! Great gifts for the bee lovers in your life – you can get regular honey bees or green orchid bee earrings – love love love them! Shipping was quick, but took a while to get here over Christmas (mail delays) but Trevor was very helpful and quick email responses. Great experience. Will buy more from you.

    I live in Florida, and we get beautiful, shy green orchid bees – the males love clove oil, so I put clove oil on cotton balls, put it in the bee pod, and the little dudes come right away – rub the oil on the legs so it attracts the ladies! The bee pod is easy to take apart to put more clove oil in there – and several openings mean several orchid bees can come at the same time – it’s the most ingenious design – LOVE LOVE LOVE IT. You have made me and many male orchid bees very happy. The design is really cool, this little sphere hanging from our deck shade, so it looks cool as well as being very functional for the orchid bees. Trevor was super responsive to a question I had about shipping, great customer service, will be back. Thank you!

    Outstanding customer service – the Bee Feeder is amazing, I put some cotton balls soaked with clove oil (must be food grade) and the male orchid bees flock to it – I like this design because of the canopy, protects the base from rain – will be ordering more. Trevor is very responsive to email inquiries (was a slight delay with mail over Christmas) – buy with confidence from him, I have bought quite a few things and he’s one of the best sellers out there. LOVE the bee feeder and the color is awesome!
