Green & Blue Bee Brick
Green & Blue’s Bee Brick solitary bee house makes the perfect gift for the garden lovers, design lovers and nature lovers in your life. An innovative nesting site for solitary red mason and leafcutter bees, amongst others, the Bee Brick makes a real design statement in any bee friendly garden, allotment, or building.
The Bee Brick™ is solid at the back and has moulded cavities where the bees will lay their eggs, sealing the entrance with mud or chewed up vegetation. Offspring emerge in the Spring and begin the process of nesting again, repeating the cycle. Solitary bees are fascinating to watch and a wonderful way to introduce kids to bees, solitary bees have no queen or honey to protect, meaning they are non-aggressive and won’t sting.
Bee houses can be a simple way to do something to help our declining bee population, alongside bee-friendly planting and other wildlife-friendly measures.
Made in Cornwall from concrete, using up to 75% recycled material from the Cornish China clay industry.
