Each Bee Brick contains cavities in which solitary bees can lay their eggs before sealing the entrance with mud and chewed-up vegetation. The offspring will emerge the following spring and the cycle will begin again. Each cavity goes part way into the brick, which is solid at the back.
Bee Bricks should be placed in a warm sunny spot on a south-facing wall at a minimum height of 1m, with no vegetation obstructing the holes. It is highly recommended that bee-friendly plants should be located nearby so that the bees using the bricks have food, otherwise it is unlikely that the brick will be used. Lavender, honeysuckle and buddleia are all pollinator-friendly plants plus many other options available from our store.
Available in a choice of four colours: white grey, dark grey, yellow and red.
These are handmade habitats for bees, made from frost resistant cast concrete.
Measurements: 215mm x 105mm x 65mm.
You could always consider incorporating this masonry brick into a house or garden wall during construction.
The bricks are designed to be used by solitary bees, those that don’t live in hives or produce any honey. They are extremely important to our planet as their pollination helps to create a huge amount of food that we eat, just for a start!
Their numbers continue to decline, so anything we can all do to help, is worth it. Adding one of these bricks to your outdoor space, will give them a home, somewhere to create their nests and for the females to lay their eggs.
