Bee Brick & Bee Block
£18.00 – £28.00
These beautiful, polished cast concrete bee bricks & bee blocks are designed to provide a nesting site for solitary bees, such as red mason bees and leaf cutter bees – they’re special bees; they don’t sting unless you really treat them bad, they do a lot of good pollination work and sadly, their numbers are in decline.
Build the brick into a garden or building wall (it’s the same dimensions as a standard house brick) or even standalone. The bees use the holes to lay eggs before sealing up the holes with mud or chewed up leaves, with the newly hatched bees emerging in the spring.
Position the bee brick in a warm sunny spot, south facing, with no vegetation in front of the holes. Ideally placed at least 1 metre from the ground.
Brick: 215 mm × 105 mm × 65 mm
