The Green & Blue Bee Brick™ is an innovative nesting site for solitary bees, created to be used as a standalone bee house in your garden, or in place of a standard brick in construction, creating more habitat for non-swarming solitary bees. The bee brick provides a stylish nesting site for red mason bees and leafcutter bees, amongst others and is an ideal way to support our declining bee populations, especially in urban environments where there may be a less natural habitat for them. Available in three color options of yellow, white or charcoal.
Because solitary bees don’t produce honey or have a queen to protect they have no reason to be aggressive meaning they are safe to encourage around children and animals. Made in Cornwall from concrete, using up to 70% waste material from the Cornish China clay industry. The Bee Brick™can be simply placed in the garden, built into a wall or retrofitted in a few simple steps. Position in a warm sunny spot, south facing, with no vegetation in front of the holes. Ideally placed at least 1 meter from the ground. Bees will lay their eggs in the cavities emerging in the Spring.
