Solitary Bees, one of nature’s primary pollinators are responsible for ensuring that everything including the Fynbos at the heart of our Gin flourishes. But sadly, these bees are fast losing their homes, leaving them with fewer natural nesting grounds. And because Inverroche is made by nature, we believe in fighting for nature. So we’ve redesigned our packaging into bee hotels called Bee&Bee’s in order to give these bees safe new spaces to nest and rest.

SOLITARY BEES

ONE OF NATURE’S PRIMARY POLLINATORS

Most people are unaware that not all bees are Honeybees, surprisingly more than 90% are Solitary Bees who don’t sting and produce no honey at all. However, their role is equally important. They’re one of nature’s primary pollinators and are responsible for pollinating more than a third of the world’s crops, making them essential for the proper functioning of the ecosystem we all call home. There are over 1000 different species of Solitary Bee in South Africa, and together we can all play our part in helping protect them.

A BEE HOTEL

WHAT MAKES OURS UNIQUE

Unlike honeybees, Solitary Bees as their name implies, live alone. They don’t stay in hives, instead they nest in holes made by other insects because most of them can’t make their own holes. So when their natural habitat starts disappearing, so do their chances for survival. That’s where bee hotels come in. They mimic the holes found in nature and give bees a safe new home in yours. And when it came to the production of the Bee&Bee, we tried to give back even more. It’s produced using invasive alien tree species and is designed with multiple sized holes to accommodate the varying sizes and species of Solitary Bee’s.
