Bee Nesting Brick
The Bee Brick is a new and innovative product designed to provide nesting sites for solitary bees.
Solitary bees are harmless and non-aggressive. Their numbers in the UK are declining and yet the role they play in pollination is vital to our environment. These Bee Bricks have been designed to give them a helping hand when it comes to nesting and increasing their numbers.
Each brick has cavities where the bees lay their eggs before sealing the entrance with mud or chewed up vegetation. Offspring emerge in the Spring and the process of nesting begins again, repeating the lifecycle.
The Bee Brick is an original and stylish garden essential. It would make a unique gift for garden lovers and nature lovers alike, and would look at home in any garden, allotment or building project. Great for urban spaces as well as more rural areas.
The Bee Brick is made from polished cast concrete and measures 215mm x 105mm x 65mm. It comes gift boxed in its own custom printed packaging.
Also available is the Small Bee Block. See separate listing below.
The Bee Brick should be positioned in warm and sunny spot with no vegetation in front of the holes. They can be freestanding or used as an integral part of a wall or wood pile, and ideally placed around one meter from the ground.
