Bee Nesting Block
The Small Bee Block is a new and innovative piece 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 Blocks have been designed to give them a helping hand when it comes to nesting and increasing their numbers.
Each block 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 Block 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 Block is made from polished cast concrete and measures 65mm x 70mm x 105mm. It comes gift boxed in its own custom printed packaging.
The Bee Block 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.
