The Green and Blue Bee Bricks will look lovely in your garden, work perfectly built into a wall and will provide a safe nesting site for solitary bees for many years to come.
Solitary bees, like red masons and leafcutters, are fascinating to watch and a wonderful way to introduce kids to bees. They have no queen or honey to protect, meaning they are non-aggressive and won’t sting.
Solitary bees are facing a dramatic decline in numbers due to disease, an increase in chemical use and habitat loss. Pollinators account for one third of the food we eat and are a vital part of our environment. These Bee Bricks, made in Cornwall using 75% waste material from the Cornish China Clay industry, are a simple way to do something to help our declining bee population.
The Bee Bricks are solid at the back and have 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.
